It has become disconnected. You will have to remove the inner door panel and see if the connecting lever is still attached and if the clip holding is still good. Check first, by trying to unlock your car with the key from outside... this is a good first check to determine if the lever is still attached.

SOURCE: 2001 GMC Sonoma Extended Cab door handle broken

You should replace the handle with an aluminum version. The best one I have found is sold on eBay for 12 dollars.
Look for the one sold by
mike8756.

It is easy to install, does not require removing any panels. Th first one I replaced took me about 1/2 hour. I hae done several since for friends and now takes about 15 minutes.

Installation instructions are here:

Good luck.

SOURCE: the door handle on my gmc safari has a broken door handle

You more than likely will have to remove the interior panel on the door which will be fun and take some time. Once you have it removed you should be able to manually operate the linkage and get it opened. I would be ready to locate a new panel just in case you break the original one, but they usually have some give to them if you take it slow. You might try removing the speaker also if you have one in the back door. It might give you enough room to use a stiff wire with a hook bent in it to operate the linkage.

SOURCE: 2006 Ford Fusion. Left front door inside handle

This link is from the handle to the latch. The door panel has to be removed in order for this problem to be fixed. The linkage is inside the door panel, it is a small diamater metal rod called a link. If you do the job yourself be careful not to break the door panel. In a shop, the labor is 1 hour for the job & if any, parts will be a seperate charge.

Rear door handle doesn't open the door from the inside


Sounds like the linkage has come off the handle inside the door. The door panel will need to be removed to gain access to the linkage. Be careful when removing the panel! Some are held on by plastic snap clips, others by screws (some hidden some not), Also the linkage may be retained by a small plastic clip that holds it to the handle itself. If this is broken you can usually find a replacement at a auto parts store in the HELP section or by showing and asking a sales person there.

1995 Tahoe inside door handle doesn't open the door


The inside door handle itself is probably broken.There is a weak point where the handle joins at the pivot(my 99 Chevy work truck handle broke so many times that I got fed up and fabricated my own handle from solid steel!) I believe this part is the same one in a 95 model year truck.The assembly (handle and surrounding plastic stuff) is only a few bucks(try RockAuto.com).The handle usually will break completely off when it starts to crack,but not always.

The front passenger door will not open with the outside door handle or the interior door handle. after taking the inside door cover off, i discovered the interior door handle is broken and the connector...


The locking mechanism is manufactured with carbon composite and plastic levers that the door handles attach to. It is hard to tell what parts that you do need. Remove the passenger side door panel. It will have some screws and maybe a bolt on the inside handle. The panel has snap plug on it and they fit into designated hole in the door. After getting the door panel off, be careful here, there are sharp metal edges that can cut. There are some peep hole to see the rods and connector inside the door. If the plastic hooks on the door locking mechanism are broken. The hole door lock assembly will need to be replaced.

Try your local wrecking yards and tell them what type of vehicle you have and year. Also, state what door it is and what you will need.

Now, if the interior door hand hook on the lock mechanism isn't broke off. The get a cloths hanger and straighten it out and attach it to the opening latch on locking mechanism. This will give you inside temporary handle, while you are trying to fix the door. Safety. GB...stewbison

My 2002 protege's door handle doesn't want to open the door! how can I fix that?


if neither handle will open it, Inside or out, its a little harder to do, But can be done, you need to remove the inside door panel , and reach inside the hole inside the inner and outer door panel, and unlatch the door mechanism, whats happened is that the arm leading to it has a little plastic retaining clip that holds it on and its either just popped out or has broken

It will open from inside but not from outside


You need to take the door panel off and check the rod that goes to the door handle. For whatever reason, it isn't connected to the door handle. It could be a missing retainer clip, a broken or bent rod or even a door handle that is broken inside.
