Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
Door will not open when door handle is pulled
Hi Paul, I'm glad to help! Most problems with door handles that won't open the door is broken parts inside the door. Pull the door panel off and move the handle while watching inside the door to see what is broken. Once you've found the broken part, simply replace it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Paul.

you don't. take it into a Hyndai Dealership and have the handle repaired/replaced. The rear hatch panel/cover has to be removed (from inside the vehicle) to access the hatch latch and open the door.. from that point the handle can be replaced/repaired.

taking off the door panel is a lot of work. i can explain it all to you if you still have the same problem. i've replaced all of my door handles for all 4 of my hyundai's doors, so i'm experienced in this department. would you like a step by step walkthrough still?

SOURCE: Interior Door Handle
This was a three minute repair, once I had the replacement handle. Leave the door panel alone! Remove the single screw holding the old handle in place. Use a flat blade screwdriver to jimmy the old handle away from the door about an inch. There are two plastic clips holding it to the rods, one for the locking mechanism and one for the latch. Use the flat blade screwdriver to unclip these two connectors. Remove the broken latch, and don't worry, the rods won't disappear into the door! Reverse these steps with the new handle (insert rods, attach clips, wiggle assembly into place, and fasten with single screw). You're done!
