Remove the door trim and go to the door lock mechanism . It may be a rod that has fallen out of the lock from a failed clip.

Remove the inner door panel and check to make sure that the linkage rod that goes between the outer handle and the latch is connected. It's possible that the plastic end clip broke.

ok, the inside panel is cardboard with faux leather. remove the screws holding on the inside handle and the frame of the doorlatch.

there is a plastic joint that connects the two rods that actuate and open the door. the rods are bent at the end to slip into the white plastic joint. this design is stupid and often times that joint can break, or the rods fall out. solution is to reattach them together and wrap mechanics wire or bend the very ends of the rods so they wont come out.

its something i cant really explain, but the design is straight forward. also, keep track of the threads on the rod that connects to the claw that meets the striker on the frame of the jeep. if for any reason its not adjusted properly, it will not latch properly.

Sealant alone will not stop a leak where the luggage rack is leaking, if it is the L/R. I am a Pilot and you just cant imagine how water can be driven in past sealant at speed. If you are leaving it to the dealer to correct this leak, good luck. I really believe it is the rack. A window leak is to easy to correct.

2004 jeep liberty, window drive broken, fell down, now rear door is locked and cannot open inside or out


If your careful you can get the door panel out of the window trim at top with out breaking it. Hooter day is best to do it as the plastic panel is more pliable. Once out wedge it back some and pull the trim out. This will give you a good inch plus gap to work threw. Most like the cable has wrapped around it. Flash light to see it and bent coat hanger, long screw driver or bar. You should be able to get it open.

I need written instructions on how to replace a outside driver side door handle for an 06 ford focus


Close/wind up the window. Remove the inside door panel. Be careful with power window switch and door speaker wiring connectors. Disconnect them before pulling the door panel away. Remove any plastic covers that may be glued to the door. Have a look at the door handle from inside the door. You will have some idea as to how to remove it. Usually door handles are secured by screws from the inside. Locate and remove them. Remove linkages to the door handle then pull handle form outside.

2000 ford f 150 supercab back door on drivers side will not open


The cable runs from the latch to the handle, it sounds like the cable broke off one end or fell off,

this truck uses cables instead of metal rods to open the latch, remove the door panel and see if the cable fell off handle area or latch,,
the cable operates the inside door handle and sometimes the outside handle but very rare that it operates the out side handle to open door.

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.

2005 volvo s60 inside door latch broke


That is not true.
The handle fell off on the inside. You can remove all the screws, remove window and lock controls. Then take a large flat-tipped screwdriver gently pry off door panel. Pull up and off when loose. You will now have access to inside off door and put the rod back in the handle hole. If the plastic holder piece is broke you will need another one. Cheap.
