The linkage connecting the outside handle to the door catch mechanism and fallen into the path of the window, preventing it from lowering. Remove the door panel and reconnect the linkage arm inside the door. Make sure th retaining clip is in place and fits tightly on the linkage arm to lock it in place. The locking clip may have fallen off the rod and may be on the bottom of the door. If you can't find it, you'll need to go to the dealer and get a new clip.

The driver's side door on my 2003 Nissan Altima will not open from the inside.


The interior door panel will need to be removed from the door. The linkage is no longer connected to the lever- it will need to be reconnected with the window in the UP position. This is a common problem when someone locks their keys in their car and uses a coat hanger to "pop" the lock. The hanger catches the rod and pulls it out. If you did not do that, someone may have targeted your car and attempted to break into it.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door


Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

2007 Hyundai Accent the driver side door won't open from the inside. It opens from the outside so I have to roll down the window and open the door before i shut the engine off.


Either the interior door handle or the cable inside the door is broken. You'll need to remove the door panel and look to see what is damaged.

Outside handle on 1997 Toyota Avalon will not open door


Since you can get the door open, half the battle is already won. Yes, open the door, pull the interior door panel and take a look around. Watch inside with a flashlight (towards the rear of the door) as you roll the window down to see if you can see what it's snagged on.
