To make life easier take the seat out, then start to take inner door panel off, at least you can get to the linkage,which is hanging off.slide seat forward and undo 2 bolts on floor inside runners,then slide back and undo 2 bolts in front runners.the rest is self tappers and clips(that break easy)

1994 Cutlass Supreme convertible. Replaced the outside door handle last year. How do you open the door to fix it when both the handles do not work now?


remove inner door panel and look for the door release arm that goes from the inside door handle and pull on it to open door. sometimes a clip breaks that holds the arm to the door handle and it comes apart. it could also be the door latch is seized or stuck and needs lubricating. you can also use a door jimmy tool to open the doors like you would if you locked your keys in the car.

Cant open passenger door from outside but can from inside


There is a rod/cable from the outside door handle (inside of the inner door panel) that has either come off or broken. You will need to take the inner door panel off and see what has happened.

you probably pulled the rod off of the handle lever. once you get into the truck. take off your inner door panel and re connect those rods. there should be 3 screws on the bottom of the inner door panel. remove those and then lift the panel up and out.

if you remove the cover that is behind the inside door handle and look you may see the arm that connects to the handle.if its connected then you will have to remove the inner door panel,if its come off the handle and you get a hold of it you can pull on it and the door should open.you have to be patient to remove the door panel with the door closed.you will need to remove some screws to loosen the panel from the steel door inner panel.(arm rest,cover behind the handle).pop up the power door/window switch control and remove the plug attached.pull out the inner door panel to unhook the clips around the outside edge of the panel,you will have to move the seat to get better access to some,then remove the panel and reach into the inner door and move the unlock arm to open the door.you move have clips that are broken that allowed the arms to come off that need replacing to fix the problem.

Hi.
Heat will not help and can damage the door lock mechanism further.
You can try lubing the door lock, but I do not thing it will help. I think there may be something wrong with the mechanism, or you will get the same problem from outside and inside.
If the door is opening from the inside , then the door lock mechanism My still be working. On VW the outer handle is connected to the lock by a steel wire, or by a metal shaft.
To access the door lock you need to remove the internal door panel. The door panel is held by hidden screws located on handles and by a set of clips located behind the panel near to the panel border.
I have service manual for several VW models, I will see if I can find the manual for 1995-1997 Passat and I will eventually send the diagrams to undo the door and access the lock.

Cant get the door open because the door handle is broke inside and out


You should be able to with a pair of pliers perhaps open door from inside -- otherwise you'll need to gain access from the inside panel.
Once the panel is off you should be able to pull the lever to open the door .......I hope this helps you.

Door won't open from the inside


Most likely a $2 plastic clip broke or fell off the actuating rod. No site that I know of, but the library should have a service manual for your vehicle. In any case, you will have to remove the inner door panel and/or the exterior handle. Check for screws on the outside handle. If ya get lucky, you can remove the handle from the outside and fix it there. If not, remove the door panel and replace the clip and rod from the inside.

Drivers door wont open


You need to remove the inner door panel (will have a couple screws in the inner door handle and push pins around the outside. Inside the door are thin metal rods connected by plastic connectors. Check all the connectors, especially at the inner and outer handles. If they both failed at the same time, I would suspect the latch itself.
