SOURCE: Broken inside door latch on driver;s door

Use a trim stick or pair of small screwdrivers to pry the door panel up. First you should remove the screws holding the armrest and any other trim. Work from the bottom up removing the panel and feeling for the clips, which should just pop out with a reasonable tug.

You won't know what parts are needed until you see the latch - perhaps you only need to reseat the latch. Look in the bottom of the door for any parts that may have fallen off and can be put back to make it work. You may need a telescoping magnet to get at those parts.

SOURCE: Door Latch will not engage

It sounds like one of the door handles is not returning alowing the pawl to latch, Lubricate, the latch assembly, making sure you work the inner and outer door handles. Also roll the window all the way down, and look down through the slot to see if you can get some spray lube at the back side of the latch, if so lube again while working the handles. Spray the pivot pionts and sliders on the handles.

Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: need to replace door latch on 2001 cavalier

Hello, I think I know your problem and I can help. The rods are attached with little plastic fasteners that "swing away" to release the rods. I am sending you a picture of a typical fastener, if you look at it you will see a square channel with one side open. The open part is where you unsnap it. It's a tight squeeze but you can reach in and unsnap the connectors to free the latch, then just remove the bolts holding the latch to the door. When you go to put it all back together, I find it's easier to unbolt the outside door handle and push everything up and out the hole to give room to connect the fasteners. Once everything is connected just slip it all down and bolt the latch to the door and bolt the outside handle back. I hope this helps you with your problem, if not feel free to ask anything else that might help, good luck. fc85c18.jpg

SOURCE: How do I remove the driver side door panel to get

if you can't open the door fromt inside or outside, you might have to cut the metal piece that the latch connects to when closing the door, using a sawzall.

I learned this trick from a local body shop where I live.

Replacing the piece is easy, with a large Philips bit.

Cheaper than ruining a door.

SOURCE: Changing the outside door handle on a 1997 Toyota Starlet

There is two bolts that hold the window slider thing in place. One just below one of the door handle nuts inside the door and the other is on the outside of the door (on the inside of the car). Once these are removed it enables you to move that mech out of the way to get to the other bolt.

I undone the 3 latch screws to give me a bit more movement in the rod that connects to the handle too.

This should give you enough room to get to that other nut and clip the rod into the handle once installed.

Once handle is installed simply just slide the window mech back up into position and bolt back in.

1997 mercury cougar door stuck shut


Hi there I had a similar problem on a 98' ford explorer and replaced the door lock actuator and solved the problem in one shot. If you never worked in cars well it will be a little tricky but if you have little experience well then you have to remove the door panels carefully to avoid damaging any plastic hold screws, once removed try to aceess the door lock from the panel to get it open since it is easier to work. Now with the door open and window up then remove the mounting brackets of the window in order to get to the lock actuator. It is hold by two only one screw just remove the wire hook up and remove actuator. install new one and put everything back good luck..
