Sounds like you need a new latch assembly, or you lock actuator is unhooked and not unlocking your latch. Will need to try and remove the door panel to see what is going on. It will be hard to do with the door closed.

What part do I need? It opens from the inside. The handle is not snapped.


Are you saying the inside door handle isnt snapped,but the door wont open by pulling on the inside door handle or is it the outside door handle thats not working??Both the inside and outside door handle has a spring and other components on the backside of the handle which cant really be seen unless you remove the whole door handle assembly.One of these components are most likely broken or the rod that attaches between each handle and the locking mechanism(part that locks into the door striker to keep the door closed and releases it too)might have come loose from the back of the handle.The outside handle is usually mounted to the door by pop rivets or bolts/nuts.The inside handle is usually mounted with screws,but it really depends on what kind of car youre driving.Youll probably have to remove the handle to inspect it for damage.Open the door and watch the locking mechanism for movement while youre pulling on the door handle.If it doesnt move when you pull on the handle,the handle is definitely broke or the rod has come loose from the back of the handle.

Nissan pathfinder problems


Check childproof lock if you can open it from the inside, but usually the connection between the handle and the lock for the outside door handle breaks.
if you can't open the door using either inside or outside door handles, go to a locksmith, auto electrician or a Nissan dealer or risk severely damaging the interior door panelling trying to do this yourself...
Please get back to us with the solution you found worked as it may help someone else in the future, thanks.

97 mercury cougar xr7 how do i get door panel off if I cant open door?


It should still be possible, using a little bit of force. all screws and bolts holding on the panel are accessible, even with the door closed...but the panel maybe slightly pinched on the front and rear ends, and possibly on the bottom...but pulling hard on the handle once every bolt and screw is removed should force the panel loose

2012 Toyota highlander (Base Plus model) rear passenger door will not open. I removed the door panel to fix the exterior door handle end cap, put it all back together, shut the door, and now it will not...


rear doors have a child lock in the door that you can set to stop children opening the door from the inside. IT is normally in the rear flat section of the door and is a small lever.. I think that in working on the door this lever was moved to the lock position . You should be able to open the door from the outside if this is the problem

94 civic sedan rear passenger door wont open inside or outside


This is a common fail on Honda civics, as a small tab breaks off of the door handle assembly inside the door. The door handle assembly needs to be replaced, and the part is about $75 . Often you need to remove the rear lower seat cushion to get the door panel off.

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

Rear door on 06 jetta wont open


At a guess the outside handle has become detached from the linkage inside the door and you've got the child lock on as well.

Well to get the child lock off, you need a long fairly broad plastic strip, I've used the long side cut out of a plastic milk carton in the past.

Wind the window in the offending door down, then insert the plastic strip in the door gap underneath the handle, once in try the internal door handle, if it fails try again working your way down the door by widths of the plastic strip, trying the internal door handle as you go, with luck you'll have release the child lock by the 3-4th try.

Once open, its taking the inside door card off and re-attaching the linkage for the outside handle.

see if you can pull the outside handle out a little & put some needlenose pliers in the opening & grab the rod to open the door. otherwise unscrew the door panel & get into the inside of the door that way.

good luck

Cant open right rear pasenger door 2005 pathfinder


i started by removing ashtray and the screw underneath. it would be easier to remove rear seat as access is not so good to move around. wind window down, then carefully pull from top of trim, it should come away fairly easy. the trim is held on by push in clips but you need to careful as they break easy. behind the inside door handle is a plastic backing plate which i found easier to remove first. now the outside handle can be undone and i simply pulled the cable and the door opened. the cable was broken where it joins the handle so a new cable is needed.
