SOURCE: How can I fix the door handle on the inside of 1999 Toyota Coroll

It's probably broken, or unhooked. Just take your inner door panel off, and you'll soon figure out what's happening. Sometimes the rods get bent, or they come off the clip, or just need adjusting. And sometimes the handle itself is broken, but you can do it!

What part do I need? It opens from the inside. The handle is not snapped.

Are you saying the inside door handle isnt snapped,but the door wont open by pulling on the inside door handle or is it the outside door handle thats not working??Both the inside and outside door handle has a spring and other components on the backside of the handle which cant really be seen unless you remove the whole door handle assembly.One of these components are most likely broken or the rod that attaches between each handle and the locking mechanism(part that locks into the door striker to keep the door closed and releases it too)might have come loose from the back of the handle.The outside handle is usually mounted to the door by pop rivets or bolts/nuts.The inside handle is usually mounted with screws,but it really depends on what kind of car youre driving.Youll probably have to remove the handle to inspect it for damage.Open the door and watch the locking mechanism for movement while youre pulling on the door handle.If it doesnt move when you pull on the handle,the handle is definitely broke or the rod has come loose from the back of the handle.

Door doesnt open from inside

there is a rod that runs from the handle to the door latch mechanism. there is a nylon clip that holds them in position. if either is broken the rod pops out and the door handle wont work. the door panel must be removed to check and repair

98 accord door handle broke door will not open

A non electric door, (which?) wont open,lock works ok, handle wont open the door.
What can I do to fix it.
well telling the door to us would help, and options.
so no electric locks,
there are 2 levers. one inside and one outside.
so you pull the door card (inside door covering)
and look at both locks , the inside pull, its it working?
then look at the key lock cylinder. is it connected still
and last are both connected to the latch mechanism.
one can cycle this latch lever inside the door shell.
if that fails the latch is busted.
all this is covered in the FSM ,why not read it.? (under body)
free , too.

My driver side door opens from outside but NOT from inside as of last night, this is for a 2002 Nissan Altima, is this something I can fix or do I have to go to a dealer?

Anything inside the door can be fixed with a little patience and some basic hand tools. Your door handles are a little more difficult than most. If the inside door handle is really loose and doesnt feel like its attached to anything its probably just the piece that attaches it to the rod. Easiest way if you want to do this yourself is to pull the door panel off and look for the cause of the problem. It should be easy to spot as more than likely something is no longer attached where it should be and u can just get the new part and install it yourself. Get your parts thru whichever comapny your comfortable with but i found this schematic to help you identify the parts and names.

I would suggest pulling the door panel and see if its something that can be found and changed easily. If its inside the door it could be quite time consuming for someone not familiar with working inside of one.
The parts are fairly inexpensive so i would suggest calling and getting an estimate first at the very least.

The door handle doesnt work from outside

If it doesn't work from the outside, but works from the inside, then remove the inner door panel and inspect the inside of the handle mechanism. The handle has likely snapped on the inside, or it's connecting rod is no longer connected.

My 2006 ford fusion also has a faulty drivers door inside handle not working. I went to get out one day & the door "popped" but didnt open all the way, & suddenly the inside handle doesnt...

i had the same problem, the inner door handle is broken.its made out of cheap plastic and happens quite a bit with fords.the part is oem only and costs around 50 bucks. easy to replace. just take your door panel off and unscrew the old one and replace it with the new one. hope this helps.

Driver's door is not opening using exterior door handle

Normally it will be the small retainer that holds the inside of the door handle to the part that hooks to the latch assembly. Or it is possible that the door handle part is broken, but not likely. You will have to have the window raised, and remove the door panel and look inside the door panel where the handle attaches to see what the problem is. May help to have a flashlight. These are sometimes difficult to fix as there is not much room to work & the parts have to be attached for the exterior handle to work. Rick
