SOURCE: 99 Cavalier driver door wont close when cold

In my case the latch mechanism was frozen. The best bet for that is to allow it to be heated; hair dryer or something then put WD40 or something on it until i get a new one

SOURCE: Driver's side door not latching / closing

pull the outside handle and unlatch the latching assembly by hand by insertins a screwdriver where the striker would normally be if the door were closed - and pry out.

You can adjust the striker by loosening the bolts, and moving it in toward the cabin.

If the door itself is droopy, adjustments are made by the hinge by loosening the bolts and lifting up or down.

Multiple attempts will be necessary to get it just right.

Dont get frustrated if it doesnt fit properly in the 1st or second attempt.
Good Luck!!

I have a 2005 ford focus and the rear driver door will not close. This problem appeared seemingly out of nowhere and I can't figure out why. Any ideas?


check the latch in the door jam it should be up if it looks closed try lifting it with your finger if it doesnt go up try unlocking that door while you lift on it

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.

Back seat car door won't shut


There should be a metal bolt or loop on the body side called a striker, check to see if it has come loose, also where the door meets the striker there is a notch on the door with a latch in the notch, check to see if the latch is open, if not, you may have to hold the door handle up (like you are opening the door) and at the same time try to open the latch in the notch on the door. If the latch in the notch is open already then try to roll it closed and see if it stays, if it doesnt then you are going to need a new door latch. Hope this helps.

Hold down the "open" button on your remote and simultaneosly pull the inside handle of that door open.

After not finding a non-tech response, played around some until the the dran latch obliged on the front door. Repeated on passenger door and whew! :-)

My Toyota Avalon passenger door makes a clicking noise when opening or closing. What could cause this?


if the click happens when the door is almost completely open then there is an over center cam that latches the door open so it doesnt just swing back at you .. the cam is visible near or on the door hinges ... if there is any loosness in the pivot pin then it will snap each time you go over the latch point .. heavy greese on its pivot pin might quiet it down .. if the click happens just as the door is opened then make sure the door front edge is not hitting the fender edge. of course lube the hinges and make sure they are not loose ...

Door won't shut


I had the same problem on nearly the same day. The rear door would not close, and then in trying to fix it I flipped a latch closed. After trying all the child safety and power locking features, I just poked around with a small screwdriver until I could open the spring that held the latch closed. Once I got that open, the door worked normally.
