    I think you probably need a whole new window regulator with new motor attached for little over $100 dollors but I cant be sure due to the fact that I don't know much about the car, no details and not sure what clip and piece is.

Open door in order to fix latch


Of course you can call a guy to come and unlock it for you in which case would save you time and headaches...Or buy a slimjim to open it yourself.That can be a headache as well if you don't know how to use it and also pending where the latch is broken...It really depends where the latch is actually broken...This can be done from carefully removing front part of door interior ..If it has power windows it will be easier of course..,If it is a crank window you will need a window crank remover if it has an inside clip...Some have a screw behind a plastic cover at the crank but some won't have a screw...If it is broken at the lever normally you can reach carefully behind panel,grab the rod and pull it to you to open door....If you knew where it was broke....Trust me to save time and get a unlock door kit from parts store with directions or else get someone to come unlock it for 20 or 50 dollars.....Save a nightmare from happening...A slimjim is cheaper however you don't know where the actual problem is....Call a door locksmith.

I am trying to fix a door handle that will not open from outside


Turn the window handle to where you can see a small 1/2" slot rt at its base where it meets the panel.you'll notice a small brass v shaped clip,you'll need hooked pick or something simular to hook this clip and pull it out of its slot,this release's window crank handle. Once this is off the rest of panel is held on by plastic panel clips that pull loose by pulling panel outwards from door ,and also by a few various screws. once panel is off temp. slide window crank back on and crank window all the way up. You then should have clear view of outer door handle. Handle has two rods attached to it,one for lock assy., one for latch release.This is the one you'll be looking at.Most likely you will find rod has came loose due to broken retainer clip at handle,or casting on handle itself has broken off.If clip is broke you can buy new clip at dealer or at some autoparts outlets,replace and reattach rod(make sure rod locks into place).If handle casting is broke will need handle replaced.It is held in place by two 10mm bolts,two rods preeviously mentioned. If handle is body color matched will need color code(on door jam sticker)to order handle from dealer to match.Lock assy will need to be transfered to new handle,it is held in by two spring clips.You notice two holes one on each side of lock,you will need to push release clips inwards through each hole to release lock and slide it out.to install just push down into newhandlle until clips engage. Let me know if you run into problems. Good luck and if this was able to help you please leave me some positive feedback. Thanks and good luck, Joel

The latch that opens the Trunk (Hatchback - as it is a minivan) is broken. I cannot open the back...


If you still have the broken piece, you can try to use that to try to open the back. Otherwise, you have to open it from the inside.
I changes mine in 2007 so if memory serves me, I had to remove the back panel and pull on the cable to open the door.

Now to see and pull on the cable, and replace the latch, you have to take off the inside liner/panel to get to the latch to replace it. This took about 2 careful hours to replace.

The trick is to get the two side pieces off.
These two plastic pieces are next to the window on the left and right sides. Each piece is about 3 inches wide and 18 inches long. Using a strong grip, or a pry bar or large screwdriver, take off both pieces. There are three clip areas that holds each piece in.

If you are using a tool, be careful to protect the area by wrapping a towel on the screwdriver/tool.

After that the bottom liner piece pulls away and you can see the latch.
There are two screws/bolts that holds the latch.

The two pieces snaps back in pretty easily.

You probably broke the plastic piece shaped like a J.
You can try to glue the pieces back, but note that the piece broke due to age. I changed the whole assembly - good for another 7 yrs. I could not find just the plastic piece.
