The problem is most likely the door lock actuators which fail and as they get worn out. Not uncommon. If it was a clip, generally you would here some sort of rattling every time you closed the door. The clip I believe you are refering to is on the back of the handle and twists out(a prtion of the clip goes over the rod to hold it in place)and then you pull the rod out. Let me know if you ned anything else and I will be happy to help.

TEST BEFORE YOU PUT THE DOOR PANEL BACK ON...... saves lots of time if you happen to put the rods in wrong.

The outside door handle operates fine, but the door will not open from the inside using the inside door handle. I am looking for how to remove the door panel, and then fix or replace a part so the interior...


Start by locating the screws in the door panel, usually around the the door handle itself. there may be some on the bottom, look to see. The rest of the door panel is held on by either plastic or metal push in clips,you may have to buy a door panel tool or use a 3" to 4" wide putty knife to ease otu the clips with. Once the door panel is removed, you probably find out that you'll need a plastic retainer clip to go back in place of the one broken, you can get these clips in the help section at Auto Zone, most GM cars have the same styles, just match the correct year model and vehicle type. remove any broken pieces from rod and replace new clip and install the rod in place simultaneously, usually slide the rod and clip together while twistng into the other rod's hole. re-install the door panel with the plastic factory sheet for noise and good luck.

I am trying to fix a door handle that will not open from outside


Turn the window handle to where you can see a small 1/2" slot rt at its base where it meets the panel.you'll notice a small brass v shaped clip,you'll need hooked pick or something simular to hook this clip and pull it out of its slot,this release's window crank handle. Once this is off the rest of panel is held on by plastic panel clips that pull loose by pulling panel outwards from door ,and also by a few various screws. once panel is off temp. slide window crank back on and crank window all the way up. You then should have clear view of outer door handle. Handle has two rods attached to it,one for lock assy., one for latch release.This is the one you'll be looking at.Most likely you will find rod has came loose due to broken retainer clip at handle,or casting on handle itself has broken off.If clip is broke you can buy new clip at dealer or at some autoparts outlets,replace and reattach rod(make sure rod locks into place).If handle casting is broke will need handle replaced.It is held in place by two 10mm bolts,two rods preeviously mentioned. If handle is body color matched will need color code(on door jam sticker)to order handle from dealer to match.Lock assy will need to be transfered to new handle,it is held in by two spring clips.You notice two holes one on each side of lock,you will need to push release clips inwards through each hole to release lock and slide it out.to install just push down into newhandlle until clips engage. Let me know if you run into problems. Good luck and if this was able to help you please leave me some positive feedback. Thanks and good luck, Joel
