Re: outside door handle does not work
There are screws hidden under little plastic buttons,the buttons are
the same color as panel. you can open them using a small screw driver
or pick .Most of the time there's one by the handle where you grab the
door. take a close look thay are hard to find.Once that
is complete you can use a pry tool around the bottom half of panel ,pry
panel from door,the lower half is held in with plastic fasteners ,that
pull out when pry-ed.You can buy new ones if they break. Now you can lift the panel in an upward motion to lift over the lock. be careful not to pull away to far from door with panel because of wire harness to the controls are still connected ,and maybe speaker wire.You can disconnect these wire harness,just be careful not to break any clips here.

Remove the door's inner (interior) panel and inspect the trailing edge of the inside of the door. You should be able to see the door linkage from both the inner door handle and (what's left) of the outer handle (try moving the inner handle to see how the linkage is routed. I suspect that when the outer handle broke, its linkage dropped onto the inner handle's linkage and jammed it. With a long screwdriver, try moving the inner handle linkage to release the door latch and then replace the outer handle and its linkage (a salvage yard may be the best source and a Mitchell body repair manual should show hoe the linkage is routed and attached. Good luck.
open with other handle/inside or outside- if full crew door- if only one handle(half door)- might be able to "fish" down window track with coat hanger- then remove inner door panel and reconnect door rods..
Make sure window is up. Remove inner door panel. Disconnect latch mechanism. Should be a few nuts holding handle on. Unscrew them. Install front door outside handle frame sub-assembly. Using a torx wrench (Usually T30) install the outside handle.
inner door pannel ??????
it is likely glued on or if it is metal then it is welded
plastic is the usual thing behind plastic pannel
pick up a chilton book and look it over
or ask dealer for copy of door break down from there chilton book
You first have to remove the inner door panel by taking the screws out of the inner handle and arm rest. the outer edges of the inner door panel either has screws or it has clips that can be pulled out. after you remove the panel you need to roll up the window and you will be looking at the back of the handle. simply un hook the clips that hold the lockrod and the inner opener rod and unbolt the outside door handle. reverse the prosses and walla.
Requires removing inside panel to gain access to latching mechanism. Most likely a part has broken. Make sure window is raised. Examine all four sides of inner door panel. Look for screws and or screw caps. Remove all screws including door handle, power window and remote mirror controls. Gently pry bottom edge of panel away from door while feeling for resistance (be certain all screws are removed). When inner panel is released, raise panel up and remove. Inspect outer door and inner door latch to determine malfunction (working both controls one at a time). Replace defective parts from dealer or junk yard. Reinstall is reverse.
You have to remove the inner door panel to get to the nuts that hold the handle in place,this is also the cause of the lock and inside switch problem.You can purchase a tool to remove the panel,if your have a bit of mechanical experience this should be fairly easy.
you will have to take the panel off to see why the inner lock/activator isnt working properly, besides youll have to take it off to fix it anyway.Maybe as simple as a bent handle to lock rod being bent and no longer long enough to activate lock correctly.youll just have to look and see.Let me know what you find
