This is a tough one. The whole inside door panel has to come off. Careful not to break the glass.
I attached a cord to the linkage and now use that as my handle. It seems hokey, but I didn't have the cash for the replacement and I only had to partially remove the panel.

How do I repair the inside drivers door latch on my 2007 VW Eos?


It sounds like you have either broken the inside door release or dropped the connecting bar to the latch. If you pull the inside handle, can you see a broken tab? Check the passenger side to see if they look the same when you pull the handle. The handle is spring loaded so it will always return back to its original position even if the connecting bar to the door latch is not connected.

2008 chevrolet interior door handle repairs


There is a repair kit for you truck. The part that is broken is the metal piece. If you go through GM you have to buy a brand new interior door trim panel because the door handle part is attached to it. Otherwise I found a company that offers a repair kit that just repairs the broken part. Plus is cheaper then buy a whole interior door trim part.

The inside door handle does not open the door. I can open it from the outside but not the inside.


I just fell into the same situation. My interior driver's door handle just does nothing all of a sudden. I went on the Mazda Forum website and came away with at least a temporary fix.
The lock switch can be used to open the door from the inside by pushing it the opposite way it's pushed when locking the door. In other words, the rear portion of the lock switch needs to be depressed and the front portion needs to be pulled away from the door. It may be difficult to do with the trim piece around the lock still on. The trim piece can be removed by pulling the small plastic cap away from the base (it's on a plastic hinge) off and unscrewing the holding screw underneath it. Pull the handle away from the door and the trim piece will come right off.
I'm using that as a temporary solution now until I get a new/used door assembly.
Hope that helps.
