Question about 2006 Ford Fusion

Rear driver's door will not open from inside

We replaced the interior rear driver's door handle a few months ago. It worked fine, then one day a friend pulled on it alittle hard and it hasn't opened from the inside since. We have taken the door panel off and the handle is not broken and will move the metal bar, but will not open the door. The child lock is not engaged either.

Try getting lube down into the handle and into the latch from inside the back seat area of the car.. You will have to use straw.. If that dosent work try just popping top of inside door panel loose. You should be able to get your arm down in from there..

SOURCE: The rear latch/handle on our

Here's how I repaired mine. Go inside and remove the plastic 2" square plastic cover. By pushing on the lever inside this area, the latch will release. Push on the door at the same time, when the latch is pushed. With the door open, remove all four screws from the plastic panel. Now pry carefully the big plastic panel off the door. There are plastic snaps holding this on, all around the edges. Now there is another metal cover over the latch mechanism under this panel. Remove this. You now can see into the latch area and put the handle back into the slot where it came out of. You'll see that the ends of the handle can be put back on the round bar, but to hold them in place, I attached 2 nylon ties on one end. You can also purchase a metal push on retainer from the local hardware store. Mine has been repaired for 8 months and had no trouble. Ford used no retainer on these handles and after prolonged use, they bend and the handle can be pulled off. A twenty minute job. Your wife can even do it.

Why won't the inside Driver Door Handle work after being replaced


Make sure if it is equipped with a child safety lock on the inside of door jamb below or above the latch is unlocked. If that is ok then check to be sure the cable or rod to the interior handle is properly connected to the latch, remove door panel and if you can't see it directly you may have to use a mirror and flashlight to see if all is connected if so work the interior door handle while looking at all moving parts and tracking down where it is not doing it's function.

Replacing Exterior Door Handle on 1989 burb


if you can not get to the handle at all you will need to go from the inside. if that is the case try and pry the top of the door panel off without distorting the panel. then with a flash light look down inside the door and you should see a metal rod, try pulling the rod up or down which should open the door! hope this helps

'00 chevy cavalier door problems i have a 4 door 1 is stuck shut in rear driver side,rear peassenger side may or maynot open from outside but open with inside handle so far.Front passenger side is...


problems with 3 out of 4 doors? Has your vehicle been in an accident just before these problem started? Cavaliers are known for problems but I have never heard of this type of situation unless the vehicle has been in an accident and the body wasn't realigned properly or verified.

Typically when you get a door that opens from one handle and not the other the problem is inside the door and part of the latch assembly has either broken or come apart. To fix it you have to open up the door itself and get to those controls.

The reason I asked about the vehicle being in an accident is because you described the door opening on it's own. Now that could have been because it didn't catch correctly but with all the other problems you mentioned I am concerned that the doors are out of aligned.

1997 Geo Metro rear door won't open!


I have the same car, same problem. I've still not been able to fix it, despite taking the inside panels off the rear doors, checking the rods were seated, applying WD-40 to the lock mechanisms, and manually working the mechanism. Child locks are not engaged, but I tried putting them on and off too. Just won't open.

Broken passenger door handle


Same problem. I have a 2000 Suzuki Esteem GL. A year ago the driver's door handle broke. Heard a sound and then it was loose. Could not open it from outside. Had to open front passenger door, open the driver's door from inside and then go out again to enter from the driver's door. FRUSTRATING. My mechanic had to take the door apart to fix it. Just a week ago, my front passenger door died on me. Can't open it from outside nor inside. The door won't open. This is such a stupid problem that costs lots to repair. Never will buy a Suzuki again. Had too many problems with it (had to fix gas tank, doors that won't open, front axle...).

Doors won't open


Jakenju, I would bet that the rod from the outer door handle is either off at the handle or the door latch on the pass door. Mayhap exact same problem on rear door.
