I just had this problem and fixed it myself, it was a small spring above the door lock that was rusted and broken that caused it.
To get into the door I cut a 100mm round hole in the door trim from the inside with a jigsaw, (take off the opposite 'opening' door's trim to see where to cut) and then used a long piece of stiff wire to pop the lock, when the door was open I removed the trim and fitted a new spring, it was messy and time consuming , but looking at the spring I am not surprised that it broke as it was so rusty. I intend to cover the hole in the trim with another small speaker, or buy a s/h trim. hope this helps Nick in Brisbane Australia

Apparently you'll have to take it apart yourself and identify the part you need - OR - take it into the Hyundai dealership and have it diagnosed and they will give you an estimate of repairs.

Door wont open locking rods detatched door wont open.how do i fix this


Sorry to say you will need to remove your inner door trim (panel) off. It will be impossible to get to the locking linkage without removing the panel. There are clips which hold the panel to the door, slowly and carefully remove. The real problem will be getting to the linkage which might mean removing or re-locating wires and other parts that get in the way. The problem is that most of these locking linkage are held together by plastic clips and they due tend to break quite often. Very easy to replace and the plastic parts are cheap. Do remember to replace all the plastic parts/bushings for the problem door side. You do not want to go back again to just replace another plastic part because another part broke and you were too lazy to replace it when you had the chance. I did! ;(

98 accord door handle broke door will not open


A non electric door, (which?) wont open,lock works ok, handle wont open the door.
What can I do to fix it.
well telling the door to us would help, and options.
so no electric locks,
there are 2 levers. one inside and one outside.
so you pull the door card (inside door covering)
and look at both locks , the inside pull, its it working?
then look at the key lock cylinder. is it connected still
and last are both connected to the latch mechanism.
one can cycle this latch lever inside the door shell.
if that fails the latch is busted.
all this is covered in the FSM ,why not read it.? (under body)
free , too.

Citroen saxo 1.1 driver door will not open


hi drivers, i am looking into the same fault for my mums Saxo forte. there are three problems as well as the post above about the child lock. (on drivers door, remove the trim panel and cut the poly material away on the end near lock. look in to the right and with the 3 T30 size torx bolts removed, carefully tilt the lock towards you so u can see the white plastic.) the child lock is at the bottom. mums wasn't stuck so i looked further into it and found the handle mechanism to be jammed and broken. this has a linkage rod that needs replacing for a few pounds from Citroen. You will need a 4 mm drill and a rivet gun to change door handle. i fixed this and now door opens and closes and will work with the key. but door wont open from inside using the pull lever. looking closely at the top right of the lock unit check make sure the long link rod is connected at both ends, i have now found that there is a spring or connecting bit that allows the door to open from in car. i am trying to find the right part for this without replacing the lock mechanism at around 70. wen i find this and the door works fully again i will post the fix method.

If you have shaved door handles, usually there is a manual opener somewhere close. Some people install them under the car so it can be popped with your foot or sometimes they're located in the wheel well.
