you don't have to replace door handle. just the actuator. ask your ford dealer for the right part, they'll know what you need

You will need to remove the door panel. Most use a special clip to attach it to the lock mechanisim. Look in the bottom of the door to find the clip that fell off. If you can't find it you will have to go to chrysler to get another clip or try a wrecking yard and they will probably just give it to you.

SOURCE: Passenger side door will not open from inside or outside.

linkage on inside of door has come undone. take off inside door panel and you will find a small rod that goes to the lock mechanism where the door closes opposite the hinges. follow the handle to the door lock.the nylon bushing may have broken.they are cheap to purchase at auto part stores.

YOU SHOULDN'T SEE THE INTERIOR ROD MOVE BECAUSE THE OUTSIDE HANDLE HAS IT'S OWN ROD THAT CONNECTS TO THE DOOR RELEASE THAT IS REALLY SHORT. IT MOVES DOWN WHEN THE HANDLE IS PULLED UP. TAKE OFF THE THREE SCREWS THAT HOLD THE DOOR CATCH ON THE DOOR AND YOU WILL SEE THIS SMALL ROD. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. LET ME KNOW. GOOD LUCK

Front passager door won't open how do i repair it on a 2006 saturn vue


Take it to a body shop and have them to open it.
without special tools and skills you'll have to remove the door panel to fix it. however removing the door panel requires that you open the door. a shop can likely do this without damaging the door panel. Once the door is opened, then you can remove the panel and repair the problem. likely a broken or disconnect acutator level for the door handles.

I have 2004 saturn vue and the rear door latch on the passenger side will not latch shut. i have taken it apart and it looks like a small black box.where could i find a cheap one, or an easy solution to...


It sounds like the the linkage, actuator (power locks), or the mechanism has broken or become dislodged. On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you should see everything and hopefully see the cause.

Door wont open


take off the plastic door panel and then there should b some plastic paper covering move it aside and reach ur hand to the back of the door (your doing this blindly) pull the door hanle to find the rod, once you find it find the latch from the inside of the door now feel for a hole and find the end of the door handle rod and place the door handle rod in the hole firmly. this should work.

Driver's side door power locks are stuck; door stuck shut.


sounds like the rods are disconnected the clips hold the rods in place the latching mechanism holds the handle in place as well did you replace the speakers or did a shop? if a shop did then they caused this if you did then you may have caused this either way untill you reattach the rods none of it will work. you will have to manually open the door at the latch from inside teh door behind the panel.
