inspect the door hindge pins and busings it sounds like they are getting worn out and maybe due for replacement. also look and see if the spring in the hindge is still their. if all is well have the door adjusted properly to repair your problem.

SOURCE: door in back cant open from outside and inside

I'm sure VW had a recall to replace door lock mechanisms around that age, check with your dealer. If the door and window on the same door are not working it could be lack of power to that door, check the wiring harness connection is still plugged in and ok on the b pillar (b pillar is the vertical panel between front and rear door), remove rubber gaitor bellows and check connections.

SOURCE: how do i repair the electric window mechanism on

The winder mechanism is plastic and prone to snapping. get a new lifter assembly. but keep your old winder motor as this is not included. Remove the door trim - screws in handle and pops around edge,(difficult to get door card past door handle take care) - disconnect elect plugs for speakers and door controls . then push out the plastic pin that connects the drive to the glass frame - awkward job - needs patience and care. hope this helps - good luck.

On a 1998 Ford Contour, can I replace the driver side door opening mechanism with the back door one?


Have to open the door & then remove the door panel,
to see what the issues are, with the inside or outside
lock mechanism

Then buy the required parts at a dealer or salvage yard

Open door manually


can it open from the outside? There is a child safety lock inside the door when open it could have been put on child proof not allowing a young child to open the door from the inside but it will still open from outside. if this is not the problem then your rod has disconnected from the latch mechanism inside the door, you may need a slim jim tool or try to remove door panel from inside, this will be difficult when door is shut but maybe possible depending on the door panel itself, they may have some screws but most just snap in.

I cant open my door from the inside of my 01 isuzu rodeo. Opens fine from outside but not the inside.


You need to remove the door trim to expose the inside mechanism that opens the door from the inside, look for a broken cable or a missing link to the inside handle, your problem will be there.

Drivers door wont open


If it were me , I'd remove the inside door panel and take it from there. It may be that you can pry open the lock mechanism with a screw driver or a similar tool, allowing you to open the door - which obviously you must do. Even that, though, will not solve the cause of your problem. You may wind up at the dealer.

My gas door release lever is not working and i cannot get my gas door to open so i can put gas in it. What do I do?


I do not believe you have access to the mechanism inside the back of the car to operate it from the back seat or the trunk. I believe the access to the mechanism is through the back seat panels and not through the trunk covers in the back. If the cable broke at the lever under the seat , you may be able to unscrew/bolt the lever holder and grab the end of the wire with a pliers and open the door. If you have an old credit card or stiff poster board you may be able to slide it into the opening side of the door to push the angle pin that locks it closed to open the door. Typically the angled pin locks into a slot in the door. The slot in the door is like a long tab. If you place a piece of card board over the paint and gently push a flat blade screw driver into the gap you can gently pry/bend the tab enough to open the door. If the tab is bent you can leave it that way so you can open the door by hand until you replace the cable. Then after replacing the cable , just bend the tab back so the door locks again. Most gas doors have locks just to keep honest people honest.

Driver door will not open using inside door handle. outside handle works fine. its almost like the door lock lever is set to lock, no real resistance when pulling lever. pulled door panel and everything...


Hey there,
I have the same problem, for me it was the metal ball at the end of the cable, on the inside of the door, was broken off. To me it seems it needs to have that cable or the clip attaching the cable replace. I took off the door panel and used a mirror to peer inside. You'll have to unscrew a plastic black cover which hides the cables near the mechanism.
Hope this helps

Driver side door wont open from outside


Fortunately, it means that the mechanicals of the door opening device are working right, if you can open from the inside. The rigid wire that connects the outside handle to the door opening mechanism became loose, or a plastic connector broke. Disassemble the door panel, reach the handle from the inside, and see if there is a thin rod dangling somewhere, and if not broken, just put it back in place.

Driver's side window stuck open.


unfortuanately the window has come off the track... happens for various reasons... on my windstar the side rail spot weld broke so the rail/track came off... i had to take the bracket out ... drill out the spot weld and put it back together with a rivet ... put the window back and it's been good since.... basically you will need to take the door panel off to see why it came off the track.
