Looks like the problem is the door is weaker than the door latch.the door bends before the lock on the latch lets go.design flaw.i'm going to remove door skin on mine and modify how it bolted to the door.already tried a new latch which didn't do any good, then i saw what was going on which causes the creak/poping noise

SOURCE: How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle

You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.

SOURCE: Driver side door problems

Get a set of hinge pins and bushings. There is a tool that you can get at harbor freight or tool king for removing the bushings. I use a floor jack and a 4x4 block of wood to support the door. you will need a spring compressor to remove the door "hold" spring. Once you have that removed, you can use a brass drift or similar rod to tap the pins out. once they are out the door will be resting on the wood. I use heater hose to wedge between the fender and the door to prevent dents and scratches. tap out the bushings. ever so gently tap in the replacements. apply a generous helping of white grease to the bushing and pin. line up the door and insert the pins. you may have to apply an ever so light amount of tapping pressure on the pins to set them final. reinstall the door spring and lube the joints with white grease. be proud of yourself as your just saved a **** load of money.

How do I open the fuel door on a 2007 chevy avalanche


My guess is the rubber bumpers for the fuel door are missing causing the door to sit in too far. Probably need like a pocket screwdriver to pop it open. New bumpers are available.

2001 honda passport front driver side door hinge is popping loudly when opening and closing, how do I repair it


You need to go to the nearest auto parts store like O'reilly and tell them you need a new door hinge pin for your car. The pin comes with llittle nit looking pieces. It is simple to put on but it will take time. But put the little pieces on top of the holes for the pin then slide the pin through the nuts and the problem should cease to exist.

Drivers side door will open but it is really hard to open it.


sounds like the door hinges may need some grease applied to them. open door and spray a teflon based lubricant onto hinges, move door back and forth and spray hinges one more time. if this does not free up the door then I would say that there may be a problem with the alignment of the hinges.

Driver side door making a popping noise when opening or closing. Lubed the hinge but it kind of sounds like it's coming from inside the panel


Check spacing between the front of the door and the
fender. The door could be pinching the fender when you open and close it. Hope this helps.

I need to remove and replace my drivers side door and do not know how to do so.


go look at the passengers side. take note of the door seam and fender seam width. its about the width of a piece of cardboad. additionally look at the door hinges on the passenger side. it may or may not have washer shims. if they do/dont then just match up with passenger side. it takes 2 people to hang the door. screw in door hinges "finger tight" just to take off the weight of someone holding the door. play with the hinges until you can open/close door without binding or crimping fender at the seam. do not over tighten hinge bolts until the door opens/closes unobstructed. bottomline 2 people needed. slow and tedious job. you may have to add or take shims(washers) out for good fit. note that you may have to add shims to the inner door hinges or to the fender hinges where they meet. hope this is clear instructions.

2004 Toyota Sienna power slide door won't open all the way


The suggested fix above did fix my problem. The problem is that a 2.5" hinged finger that pops up from the floor of the door opening to block the door. Apparently, the finger should, but doesnt go back down after the gas flap is closed. Even after I got hinged finger down (so that the sliding door would open/close all the way), it still would not go back down after the gas flap has been opened. i.e. I have to push the finger back down every time after we fill up with gas. It looks like there is a little wire/spring that should pull the finger back down, but it is off of the finger. I think that replacing this back on the finger should fix the problem permanently.

Driver's side door handle will no longer open door from inside


1st check the door hinges. Open the door, try to lift it up and down while someone watches the hinges. If there is movement at the hinges, they are worn and need to be replaced and are probably the reason u are having difficulty w/ the door.
