You most likly have a broken lock rod clip inside the door. you can remove the door panel and look around the latch and you will find your problem.

How can a door panel be removed from the drivers side for a 97 Buick park ave if the door won't open from the inside or out for the handle to be replaced.


Sounds like your latch locked up. Ok this is how I do it up to you to do it the same way. I lay on the seat while somebody else is on the outside pulling on the latch and door while you inside kick the door as hard as you can as close as you can where the latch is more then once. Good luck.

I installed a new door handle on my 2000 park ave and the door still doesn't open. is it the door latch now?


In order to put your new door handle on your vehicle you have to take the inner panel off, then disconnect the screws and pins to replace. Be sure to put everything back the way it was so you don't get any rattles.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Remove the door panel from inside the car. and then look into the door with a torch its uncomfortable but possible. then fiddle with the different levers and cables till it pops open.

Door handle on my 2000 Buick Park Ave wont open the door, the door will open from the inside, is a part on the handle broken


Either the linkage fell (broke) off, or the handle itself broke. Most handles are only plastic afterall. You can buy new outside handles for fairly cheap ($20 or so). Installing them can be easy or tough depending on the vehicle - soem give you room, some do not. But the job is very straight forward - start by taking off to inside panel. Locate the (should be two) bolts/nuts that hold the handle in place. Take off the lock (held in by retainer clip) and the linkage (metal rod with plastic retainer clip). like I said, pretty straight forward. (make sure the window is all the way up before you start).

Driver side doors do not open from outside, inside handles operate appropriately. outside handles were pulled with force after recent ice storm. I am guessing a linkage in the door has been broken or...


The repair will require removal of the door panel and adjustment/replacement of the rod that connects the outside handle to the lock mechanism, or replacement of the handle itself.

Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.
