May be a control rod has dropped off. Remove the inner door handle and the inner cover , wind up the window . remove the plastic dust seal, you will now be able to inspect the door lock.

the door lock actuator is defective, they get really hard to move when they go bad, that is why the difficulty with the key.

Passengers door won't open


Are both of the door handles broken and not moving the lock rods enough to trip the lock mechanism? Do you feel any resistance when operating the handles? If there isn't suffcient clearance between the door and passenger seat to pop the panel clips out of the holes they are seated in then you may have to break the panel to remove it. This would need to be a last resort method to access the door lock mechanism to open the door, but sometimes it is the only way.

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

The only thing it could be is the rod to your door handle don't engage the locking mechanism to unlock the door. There should be a rod that connects to that.

2006 Jag xj, passengers door cannot be opened either from inside or outside. The inside door handle is in a "half cocked" position and I have tried all I can think of with combinations of Key...


I would confer with your Jag dealer on this one. Removing the door panel with the door closed is a real problem and they may have an easy fix without risking damaging anything. From what you say it sounds like the normal door release mechanism is not engaged but that the lock is. All I can suggest is to wind the window down and to do a combination waggling the 'half cocked' internal release handle back and forth whilst at the same time physically unlocking the door lock and/or using the central locking fob; press the door into the door jam at the same time to take pressure off the frame catch.

1995 Ford vdan rear passenger door won't open (unlocked).


I just delt with this situation myself. I don't know if this is the same solution, but I had the same problem. If you take the panel off the door, you can probably push the rod that opens the door by hand. it's likely the handle isn't engaging the rod enough to open it. if that's true, just pop out the plastic bushing and screw it out (toward the front of the vehicle). Also, you probably want to lube up the latching mechanism. I had to actually cut a hole in the door to get mine to open (had sat for a couple of years). These handles just need adjusted after awhile.

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...).
