What will it cost me to get it fix and how long.Is is something I can fix myself. Can slamming a car door mess something up inside your door?

With a little dedication, about 3-5 hours for a first time you can fix it yourself

however, if you are a little nervous about taring about your car, take in to almost any shop and it shouldn't cost you more than $250 with parts and labor

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from too fix???

Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

The slamming of the passenger door deployed the passenger seat airbag, is this normal?

Depending on the year make and model, yes it could be normal.
You would have to slam the door pretty hard to duplicate the force of an accident.
I would contact the dealer to find out and to get it fixed. There could be a service bulletin.

2002 Saturn Vue rear passenger door will not lock

It sounds like the the linkage, actuator (power locks), or the mechanism has broken or become dislodged.
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. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you should see everything and hopefully see the cause.

Cant open the passenger door after it was slammed shut. both in and out door handle rods are connected and pulling and pushing on the latch inside the door. what can i do to get the door open?

the only way is to try to get the panel off the door......if not able to get fully off, then need to get enough near the door handle to be able to put your hand in to the mechanism

Passenger side doorwon't open from inside the car

What has happened is the poorly designed clip that holds the pull bar to the handle has snapped causing the bar to fall out. Take the interior panel off of the inside of the door, using 2 pairs of pliers twist the end of the bar around and simply insert it in the hole it fell out of, I have had to do this to all of my doors and, unless you slam the door really hard it will stay put.
