Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

Can't open back passenger door on 2002 Mazda Tribute

Using the handles (both inside and out) it feels as if there is nothing attached on the insides. What is the easiest way to pop the panel off? I was afraid to try anything without asking.

2002 suburau forrester - front passenger door won't open from inside - all locks operate normally- opens from outside only

The rod may have come off the inside handle or latch. You will have to take off the door panel and see if its connected. Sometimes the inside handle breaks where the rod attaches. If not the latch would be faulty.

Left door

don't know about your trunk...
but for the passenger door, it sounds like the linkage connecting to the outer handle is broken...on the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.

The inside door handle does not open the door. I can open it from the outside but not the inside.

I just fell into the same situation. My interior driver's door handle just does nothing all of a sudden. I went on the Mazda Forum website and came away with at least a temporary fix.
The lock switch can be used to open the door from the inside by pushing it the opposite way it's pushed when locking the door. In other words, the rear portion of the lock switch needs to be depressed and the front portion needs to be pulled away from the door. It may be difficult to do with the trim piece around the lock still on. The trim piece can be removed by pulling the small plastic cap away from the base (it's on a plastic hinge) off and unscrewing the holding screw underneath it. Pull the handle away from the door and the trim piece will come right off.
I'm using that as a temporary solution now until I get a new/used door assembly.
Hope that helps.
