This is a hard one to deal with! You are better off going and paying a good bodywork garage to fix this!
To get at all the bolts and screws to fix the problem you need the door open.
For a home fix you would have to physically smash the outside door handle off and rip out the guts of it still in the door just to reach a small metal bar to open the door.
Pay someone else to deal with this headache.

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

1997 Jetta Passenger Door is stuck closed


sounds like the linkage came apart on the inside of the door. Remove the inner door panel & u will see the linkage probably disconnected. find out where its disconnected & reconnect it. there may be a clip which holds it together which u may find in the bottom of the door.

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.

I couldn't open my back door of my car from the outside and then my sister decided to put child lock on and now I can't open it from inside or outside. With out being able to open the door to take it apart...


It sounds like it could be the plastic connecting bit that links the outside door lever to the rod that operates the door mechanism, has broken or become disconnected. To check, you will need to remove the trim on the inside of the door, after removing any screws and the inside door lever and window winder. However now that the child safety lock has been set it could be very difficult to get the door open.
All I can suggest is that you look at the other rear door to locate the position of the safety tab and then try to disengage it by using a suitable thin blade or something on your bad door so that you can again use the inside lever.

Once you have the inside trim off and the plastic sheet, you will see an access hole for the door mechanism and the outside operating handle of the door. It should be attached to the actuating rod by the aforementioned plastic bit. If plastic bit appears OK try re-attaching it or replacing it if broken. If the part of the outside handle which attaches to the rod is broken the handle will need replacing.

Look on the very end ot the door you will see where the recieving latch is.This is where you spay.You need to make sure that the latch didn't fall into the closed position.You can look at the latches on the other doors to see what they look like in the open position.You can take a flat screwdriver to flip the latch back and forth while you hold the handle.

Broken passenger door handle


Same problem. I have a 2000 Suzuki Esteem GL. A year ago the driver's door handle broke. Heard a sound and then it was loose. Could not open it from outside. Had to open front passenger door, open the driver's door from inside and then go out again to enter from the driver's door. FRUSTRATING. My mechanic had to take the door apart to fix it. Just a week ago, my front passenger door died on me. Can't open it from outside nor inside. The door won't open. This is such a stupid problem that costs lots to repair. Never will buy a Suzuki again. Had too many problems with it (had to fix gas tank, doors that won't open, front axle...).
