When you open the door there is a little black plastic rod that comes out of the body of the car. It is usually where the door hinges hook to the body of the car close to the dash area. Youwillhave to remove and replace it.

How to get passenger door open on 2006 chevy cobalt with seat belt stuck in door?

This is going to sound a little odd, but properly jack the car and then try opening this door. Put the jack in the recommended jacking spot on the passenger side.

Imagine that the back and front ends of the car are compressing the center of the car. By lifting one end or the other, the center may shift. Otherwise you do not have a frame, but the engine cradle may have a support located closer to the center of the vehicle. Do not jack the sheet metal, but you may catch the cradle and apply lift there.

You may notice by putting in a piece of cardboard in the doorjam on whether there is an increasing gap as you jack the car.

Cougar4lifcant get my door to close Ive tryed everything the latch is stuck. How do I get the latch to open.

With a decent scrwdriver lightly pry on it and pull on the door handle. This will release the mechanism so you can pop it back into the open position. If you accidently shut the door with the door latch closed you may have to be forceful with it. I have had to do this before with cars that have sat for a while or had frozen in severe weather. Make sure the door is not locked while you are trying to get the latch unstuck.

Hope this helps... Dale

The door afar sensors are located in the door latches. Try spraying all the door latches with wd40 penetrating oil and see if that helps.

The seat belt on the driver's side of my '98 Chevy Cavalier is stuck in the door position and won't pull out (it is a manual seat belt). How do I get it unstuck?

Usually when they get stuck you can`t get them unstuck unless they are just belts are not repairable.Your best bet is to go to the salvage yard and get a used one and replace it.
