If you havent' already broken the door handles tugging on them, inside the door you will find a linkage with a tensioner adjustment. You need to tighten that linkage adjuster. You will find if you take off the inside door panel and pull the linkage manually the door retanier will actuate. The job is a PIA, and requires a couple of very long, very small box wrenches. Dont attempt to adjust the linkage without loosening the retaining nut, the linkage will shear right off, thus making the outer door handles permanently locked Good luck.

The two back doors for a jaguar xj6 1994 do not, open email afernadez730hotmail.com


If the doors will open from the outside, but do not open from the inside - the child safety switches are probably activated. Open the rear doors (from the outside) and slide the small levers next to the doors locks (on the edge of the doors) upwards.

1994 Jag xj6 car door will not open from the outside


The door latch sometime wears out they made it out of plastic. I have the same problem and the latch is no good. These cars are made so cheaply. They charge an arm and a leg for them even the parts to replace the defective parts. Jags are poorly designed sorry but you may need a new latch

1988 jaguar and cannot open doors from outside


need to remove the interior door panels and check all the linkages. One of them is a brittle plastic linkage that is famous for breaking, and bits get caught up in the travel path of the door handle. I had taht issue, and rebult all mine with aftermarket plastic linkages, and the metal parts I pulled from junkyard cars. No way to fix it without removing the interior door panels, but that is thankfully a pretty easy job.

I have the same problem as this other person with the jaguar xj6


spray around the gas door with wd40 a couple of times and wait a few minutes for it to disolve the salt or crud or corrosion. Sppray again and even a third time of necessary.

once the door is opened, spray it again, including the hinge and the catch. then spray it again in a week or so and you will be good to go.

This is a child safetly feature. There should be a small lever on the inside of the door frame on the door itself. You will have to switch it back in order for the handles to function again.
