    Golf Mk5 estate: Fitted a new window winder mechanism to drivers door. Removed lock,handle and barrel. Thought I put it all back OK but when I shut the door it would not open again. Lock make the right noises on key remote, and door bar pops up. but door is firmly shut. Internal lever opener won't work lock either. Thought I had srewed the barrel retention screw home properly but barrell is loose and can be withdrawn.Only apparent way of getting at this screw (under plastic cap) is now to remove back door. Short wire and plastic half round end from lock is correctly engaged in the door pull handle keyway.

    Have now forcebly removed trim panel from inside the car! What do I do next?

It sounds like the door lock mechanism that the door button rod connects to inside the door is in the locked position.
Has the rod for the door handle been connected to the lock mechanism?

Rear door handle broken. Mazda mpv 2001. lock works fine.


The relay rod inside the door has broken (not likely), one of the retaining clips that hold it in place are broken (most likely) or the tab on the door handle assembly is broken (again not likely). to gain access you will have to remove the door panel. You did not say whether the handle you are having a problem with is the interior or exterior but to remove the door panel you will need to have the door open, you might want to purchase a Haynes or Chilton manual for your car to get the proper instruction if you have never removed one before.

The driver's side outside door handle is loose, toyota celica '95


I assume that the entire handle unit is loose in the body work of the door.
The interior door trim will need to be removed to access the inside of the door to fix the loose handle.

Do not attempt his yourself unless you have some experience in this area.
Take the vehicle to the nearest reputable auto body repair shop and they can easily fix it for you. There could be a breakage on the retaining system on the handle or the retainers may just need tightening.

Typically door handles which have not been subject to damage or abuse will not usually loosen like this. It's possible the door was damaged and the panel repaired and repainted at some stage. If so the door handle may have been removed and refitted in a sloppy manner.

Diver side door will not open with door handle (outsidedoor )


There is a small clip that holds the outside door handle arm (inside the door) to the latching assembly, so the door panel has to be removed to reattach it. Sometimes the little clip is still attached to the handle arm, sometimes they are in the bottom of the door & sometimes you can't find them at all... Rick
