Linkage broken?... only way to find out is INSPECT the system. Have you done this?.. If not, SOLUTION!.. Take vehicle to Mazda and have it PROPERLY diagnosed -- this way you'll know what's wrong and what's needed to FIX it. AGREED?

Passenger door handle broke of the outside of Nissan pathfinder, now the door wont open from the inside or out. how can we get the door open?

Remove the door's inner (interior) panel and inspect the trailing edge of the inside of the door. You should be able to see the door linkage from both the inner door handle and (what's left) of the outer handle (try moving the inner handle to see how the linkage is routed. I suspect that when the outer handle broke, its linkage dropped onto the inner handle's linkage and jammed it. With a long screwdriver, try moving the inner handle linkage to release the door latch and then replace the outer handle and its linkage (a salvage yard may be the best source and a Mitchell body repair manual should show hoe the linkage is routed and attached. Good luck.

Rear door handle doesn't open the door from the inside

Sounds like the linkage has come off the handle inside the door. The door panel will need to be removed to gain access to the linkage. Be careful when removing the panel! Some are held on by plastic snap clips, others by screws (some hidden some not), Also the linkage may be retained by a small plastic clip that holds it to the handle itself. If this is broken you can usually find a replacement at a auto parts store in the HELP section or by showing and asking a sales person there.

Door does not open when unlocked, when I unlock my doors, the inside handle does not open the door but it will open from the outside, (most of the time)

There are linkages inside the door that go from the handle to the actual part that unlatches the door, it sounds like a linkage has come undone or is bent.

Roll the window up and remove the inside door panel, you should have a limited view of the linkages. Replace/repair as necessary and your problem should be fixed.

I have a 1988 jaguar xj6 and the outside door handles dnt open

If you havent' already broken the door handles tugging on them, inside the door you will find a linkage with a tensioner adjustment. You need to tighten that linkage adjuster. You will find if you take off the inside door panel and pull the linkage manually the door retanier will actuate. The job is a PIA, and requires a couple of very long, very small box wrenches. Dont attempt to adjust the linkage without loosening the retaining nut, the linkage will shear right off, thus making the outer door handles permanently locked Good luck.
