Sounds like you have a rusted door lock in that door, inside panel will have to be removed to access the lock assembly!

SOURCE: 1997 Buik Century-the handle on the driver side door is loose. I assume I need to remove the inside panel to tighten bolts for handle.

Yes there should be a clip and or 2 small screws. sometimes it rusts, but you dont see that very much.

good luck,
Michael

the door handle is either broke or a part of it has slipped loose, either way, you'll have to remove the inner door panel to get to it, this is not difficult, a few screws and the panel is retained by push in type plugs that can be pryed loose. the entire door latch assy is held in by screws and is serviced by replacement, the difficulty come with very tight area to work in, and is irritating and time consuming, if you are not good with tools i'd suggest a good mechanic or body shop. always get a quote!!

SOURCE: passenger door on my 2dr 89 LeSabre wont open

You're going to have to take the inner panel off to figure it out. If the seat won't go back far enough, you may have to remove it first.

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

get a tool from the parts store called a slimjim.. its a thin long metal bar that has notches in one end..it will fit between the weather strip and the windowglass and allow you to "trip" the door latch to open the car door(just like car thieves do!) and then you can acess the door panel to fix those pesky handles..

I bought a 95 geo prizm and the back doors wouldnt open i finally got the passenger back door open when now i got the handles to work but the door wont seem to latch how can i fix this?


The doorlock has the ability not to unlock all the way after being locked. Take the door panel loose and you can access the locking mechanism. Push the mechanism all the way forward. This should solve the problem

I also have a problem with my driver side door. It started two weeks ago, it just plain won't open. I can get almost all the inside panel off except for the window handle. I'm told that ther e is a pin or...


To get the window handle off use a rag and slip it between the handle and the door panel and run the rag as though you were trying to wipe out dirt all the way around. The clip should catch on the rag and slip right out.

1. Don't be surprised if you loose it as they have a tendency to fly. You can get one at any parts house. Just tell them you need the "jesus clip" for the door handle, they will know what you mean.

2. To reinstall, put the clip back in the slot on the handle and push it back on the shaft so it is like the passenger side.
