SOURCE: cannot open drivers door from the inside on 2001

1. The Metal Rod connecting the inside door handle to the door mechanism is most likely disconected either at:
a. The inside door handle
b. The connection on the door mechanism.
2. The Door Mechanism is not operating correctly.
You should be able to see the door mechanism and the connections. I sometimes use a poskeyt mrror and flashlight to see the mechanism.
A. Check the connections and try moving the metal bar back and forth attempting to open the door.
B. If this does not work: then attempt spraying WD40 into the door mechanism and re-attempt.
C If this does not work: then remove the mechanism and check the inside door connection mechanics.

SOURCE: How can I fix the door handle on the inside of 1999 Toyota Coroll

It's probably broken, or unhooked. Just take your inner door panel off, and you'll soon figure out what's happening. Sometimes the rods get bent, or they come off the clip, or just need adjusting. And sometimes the handle itself is broken, but you can do it!

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from too fix???

Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

I cant open the front door from the outside i can hear somthing loose inside the door but the door will open from the inside.

Ur link cable from the DOOR HANDLE is dislocated and need for u to connect it again!
Just open the door sidings and u will see a wire cable dangling near the door lock, examine how the handle moves, u will see the hole that the link cable would be inserted.
2 nuts holds the door handle lock, remove them to make ur repair a bit easier!

Hope that helps u out!

The drivers door handles in and out do not work. i cant get the door open to get at the interior of the door . Any ideas

With the window rolled down, try and use a metal coat-hanger to grab the door hinge and open it. Then once it is opened, remove all the door panel screws, then gently pry the rest of the panel off. You will likely see the door rods inside have fallen off.
