What has happened is that the link rod connector, a plastic piece, has broken, and the rod is indeed flopping around in there. These are always fun, as they never break after the door is already open; it is always the act of opening the door which breaks them. The parts are cheap, less than $5, but getting to them...not so great.
To further assist you, I need to know which rear-door configuration your van has. Please respond if you still have the vehicle and the problem.

SOURCE: Exterior door handles

Door panel off,window up, you should be able to see the back of the handle. There should be 2 screws or nuts holding the handle on. There should also be a rod going to the handle that is held on with a clip. One end of the clip just lifts up off of the rod and then the rod should slide out of the handle.Sometimes it is a little difficult reaching in doors and doing this but just take your time and watch for sharp edges.
Once you have the door panel off you should be able to see how it all works. If you can't get to the upper clip you might be able to take the lower one loose and take the rod out with the handle.
I hope this helps and that I guided you in the right direction.

1990 chevy astro van the door handle broke cant get door open cany ou help

You will need to manipulate the lock linkage from inside the door using car-thief type tools and expertise or by gaining access to the door internals by removing the interior trim panel from the door. It is not an easy task and might need the seat removing and even then the panel is likely to suffer damage.

How can I open the top rear hatch door on a 94 astro van if the button wont unlatch it

You will need to remove the interior trim including the handle to pull down the door, then you will be able to slip your hand in and manually trigger the release.

Last time I saw this happen, the linkage had simply popped of, I put it back on and wrapped a bit of safety wire around it to make sure it wouldn't happen again.

Hope this helps.

My front door will not close because latch has locked in place, help 1999 Chevy astro van

You should be able to open it with a large screw driver. Simply put the screw driver in the hole where the latch would go and pull the handle to open the door. With the handle in the open position pull the screw driver toward the inside of the van and the latch should open right up. Then close the door. Hope this helps.

I have the Chevy Astro AWD 1998 passenger van with the three part rear door (tilt up window and then split half doors). The handle broke off of the right side primary door. Is there a way to get the door...

just take off the inside panel and look inside the should be some tiny silver bars that either pull up or go side to side, then pull that should open it. also you can get to the handle from the inside access and replace from an auto parts store

Door handle pulls but door doesn't open, 93 chevy lumina coupe 3.1 engine

Sounds like clip holding linkage(rod) may have come off, and linkage did the same because of it. You may have to remove interior door panel to investigate & re-attach.

How do you remove the rear side door panel to

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls
