Question about 2001 Volvo S60

1 Answer

The driver's side door could not be opened inside with interior handle. I have a 2002 volvo v70. Everthing seems ok before I pressed the central locking buttom at driver door armrest. Now the driver door could not open inside (it could open outside). As I tried to pull the interior handle to open the door, the handle could not automatically go back to right position as usual (have to manually press back). What is the problem with it and How can I fix it? Thank you very much!

My volvo v70 drivers door will not open

My first thought is that there may be a broken linkage inside the door. The drawback to that is that you need the door open in order to work on it. It could be the lock linkage or the handle. I would suggest having a locksmith look at it. They have some tools that will allow them to look down in there and possibly see what's going on. (Very doubtful they would be able to fix it)

I have a volvo v70 2001. The fuel door won't open. I thought there was a way to open it from inside the car, but I am having trouble.

There is. V70 means it is a wagon so it is going to be on the same side as the fuel door inside of the car. The handle is usually yellow or a neon green. Check where the jack is kept.

the inside door handle is probably broken. the cable may have popped out but usually its because the clips on the inside door handle break off. luckily you can just replace the handle and not have to get a whole new door panel

2005 volvo s60 inside door latch broke

That is not true.
The handle fell off on the inside. You can remove all the screws, remove window and lock controls. Then take a large flat-tipped screwdriver gently pry off door panel. Pull up and off when loose. You will now have access to inside off door and put the rod back in the handle hole. If the plastic holder piece is broke you will need another one. Cheap.

The driver side door latch will not work from the inside. i have to reach out the window to open the door from the outside.

Sounds like the linkage that runs from the handle inside the door to the locking mechanism is dislocated.

This requires opening up the door panel and re-attaching. It may have completely broken in which case needs a new linkage which you can find at and local auto parts store.
