Passenger door won't open

Passnger door won't open. Can't fix it because I can't the door open. I know it is the latch mechinism because I already recently fix the drivers side. I don't know how to open the door to repair this side without beating up the door. The car is not worth the price of a new door.

Rear passenger door won't stay closed


Door latch on door itself is in closed position if it will not close at all. In this case, open door and pull outside handle hard to pop open door latch. If you have door opening at random, door latch needs replacing or door catch on body is loose.

Think there may be a bushing missing and that's also how you make adjustments as well. Below are some pictures I had from my service manual. It wasn't much but I hope it helps.

Driver door won't close 1999 ford contour


Drivers side door will not close because, it might have dropped out of alignment and is sagging down slightly!!! or if it has electric door locks, and someone in the family has failed to mention door locks were activated while that one door was still open!!! now lock mechanism has passed it's normal stopping place and is now stuck, therefore already locked and not allowing door to close all the way!! you might try disconnecting battery then try jiggling the lock, and hope silenoid didn't get burned out, open passenger door and look at lock latch, then check drivers side lock latch!!! if your lucky lock latch should unlock when battery is hooked back up. i have seen this problems happen often on older vehicles!!! especially on cars or trucks that have been in fender benders.........body shops know what to check for, they fix problems like this often!!!!! Good luck!!

My passenger doors will not latch on


does the door just bounce back open when you shut it? If so then the latch inside of your door should be in the open position. You may need to take a screw driver and lightly pry it back open so that the U shape or Yoke if you will is pointing towards the inside of the car if you were to slowly swing the door shut. That way the striker (located on the car body inside the door frame) will go into this yoke and it will rotate upward as the door latches. Remember to lift the door handle before prying down on the locking mechanism (yoke latch). If your latch is already in the right position slowly close the door and see where the latch and striker are hitting. If it looks like the latch is to low then your door hinge pins and bushings are worn needing replacement. You can usually get this done for about $60.00 from a local body shop.

2004 chevy astro van back seat right door won't open


not sure about your specific vehicle but i do know that in the winter, when a door closes, it grabs the pin in your doorjam like a lobster claw closes on a finger. if any moister is inside the mechinism, it can freeze very easily. also if you pull on the door handles tp try to open it...if the door handle moves freely, then you either bent or popped the rod that goes from the latch mechanism to the handles and you would have to take off the interior wall of the door to get to it and fix the rod or put it back...it used to happen to older cars allk the time.

1994 Nissan Altima Passenger Door won't open


Since you have the door panel off, pul the rod for the door lock manually inside the door, this should unlock it, if it does not, there is a small push button, basicly a little peice of metal on the latch itself on the door latch inside the door, push it down this should pop the door open, you may need to spray all of the mechinisms with white lithium grease in a arosol can.....
