This is going to be a tough one. the rod that connect the door handle to the lock assembly is no longer attached and the door liner will have to come off to fix it. It's not so tough to get the door line off "if you can open the door to do it" when the door is closed it's another story. Good luck

Cannot open rear drivers side door from outside or inside. door panel is off, door is closed. child lock is on. tried pulling cable, wont move. tried lifting up the child lock with a thin blade


Sounds like the lock mechanism is stuck on the locked position. Since you didn't specify make and model this is a best guess. Make sure the lock is in the unlock position and try manipulating the rod connected to the outside handle (since child lock is on the inside handle won't work)

Why won't my rear passenger doors open using the inside door handles but will open using the handles on the outside/


this indicates that the child locks on the rear doors have been activated
they are designed to prevent children from exiting the car unexpectedly and dangerously
when you have the door open check the position of the child lock on the edge of the door

My rear passenger side door will not close


Just use the outside door handle and pull on the latch that is closed. If you use the inside door handle then you will have to undo the child lock.
Pull on the latched that is closed while holding the outside door handle....Make sure that it is unlocked...

Passenger door will not open from the inside or outside


Hi, check if the child lock is set on. Some cars will have a child lock on the rear doors to prevent the kids from opening the door on the inside. On some models electric door lock maybe at fault.
Good luck.

Rear door on 06 jetta wont open


At a guess the outside handle has become detached from the linkage inside the door and you've got the child lock on as well.

Well to get the child lock off, you need a long fairly broad plastic strip, I've used the long side cut out of a plastic milk carton in the past.

Wind the window in the offending door down, then insert the plastic strip in the door gap underneath the handle, once in try the internal door handle, if it fails try again working your way down the door by widths of the plastic strip, trying the internal door handle as you go, with luck you'll have release the child lock by the 3-4th try.

Once open, its taking the inside door card off and re-attaching the linkage for the outside handle.

1997 Geo Metro rear door won't open!


I have the same car, same problem. I've still not been able to fix it, despite taking the inside panels off the rear doors, checking the rods were seated, applying WD-40 to the lock mechanisms, and manually working the mechanism. Child locks are not engaged, but I tried putting them on and off too. Just won't open.

Rear Drivers side door will not open from the outside, Handle moves to freely; and will not open from the inside because of the child locks.Suspect it will not open from the outside because of a broken...


try switching off the child lock. but if it doesn't work your guess might be right. usually the door handls are plastics, easily breaks when forced. just try prying of one of the edge of the door panel and try to peep through just to be sure.

Volvo s40 rear doors wont open inside or outside


There is a child safety switch on the rear latch assembly that prevents opening from the inside handle. This switch may be on. Check your owners manual for more info.
