Drivers side door will not open by using the inside handle


The door inner panel will have to be removed, to see if the handle is broken or the rod connecting handle to latch has come loose. When you get the panel off, you will see if it's the handle or the rod (held in place with plastic clips at both ends). If it is the rod, pull off the plastic water shield to work inside the door. The plastic can be resealed with new adhesive.

The inside door handle won't open door from inside outside door works fine it's on drivers side 2006 ford fusion selv6


It sounds like the connecting rod popped out of its plastic connector. Pull the door panel off and check both ends of the rod. It must be unhooked at one end or the other.

Outer door handle does not open door on drivers side how do I fix it? Inner door handle works.


There are one of 2 things wrong here. Either the outside handle is broken, and you'll need another one, or it is out of adjustment and can be repaired. It's a little work to find out either way, the inside door panel must be removed. This is lots of screws, you'll see as you start removing them. The black triangle plastic near the rear view must be taken off, pry the little round plug out and then remove the nut. Finally the panel lifts up, give the bottom a smack upward with your hand, it WILL come up.

Now is the tricky part, you need to see whats wrong. There is a rod connecting the door handle to the door release. If the rod looks like it moves up and down when you move the outside door handle up and down then it needs adjusting.
See the picture of the door handle...the white nylon clip on the right must be separated from where it attaches to the rod, then the rod is positioned higher so the handle can pull it up enough to open the door.

If the rod does NOT move when you move the handle, either the rod is completely loose, or the handle is broken. Remove 2 nuts from the inside and the handle comes out, and put back in a junk yard or ebay replacement. Good luck...Chris

The drivers door will not open with the outside door handle but can be opened with the inside door handle.


inside the door on the release mechanism there are two rods held to the lock assembly by nylon clips. One is activated when you open the door from the inside the other from the outside. It sounds like one of the nylon clips has broken or come loose. This often happen after someone has locked their keys in the vehicle and used a slim jim to open the door.(a slim jim is a long flat piece of metal used to trip the lock from outside by inserting it between the window and the weatherstrip and activating the rod) Often during this process the rod is dislodged from the slot in the lock mechanism.

To access this you must first remove the inside door panel and the moisture barrier. You can then see if the rod is loose and if the clip is broken or just knocked loose. On some vehicles it's not possible to actually see the lock assembly and you have to feel your way through the process of checking for a broken clip or a loose rod.

94 chevy lumina apv door will not open most of the time


since it is the drivers front door it could be the outside door handle , the rod that goes from the handle to the lock asbly or the lock asbly its self take the door trim panel off and then loos inside the door and latch the door with the door open. open the door with the outside door handle and watch the rod and the lever that the rod is pushing down the lever might not be pushing the lever down far enough to release the lock. If the lock does not open try pushing down on the lever and see if the lock releases if it does ck the outside door handle for cracks along the hinges of the handle I have found that most of the time that it is the outside door handle cracked and the rod is not moving the lever far enough to release the lock.

Driver side door wont open from outside


Fortunately, it means that the mechanicals of the door opening device are working right, if you can open from the inside. The rigid wire that connects the outside handle to the door opening mechanism became loose, or a plastic connector broke. Disassemble the door panel, reach the handle from the inside, and see if there is a thin rod dangling somewhere, and if not broken, just put it back in place.

I have a '93 Buick Regal Custom. Last year I was unable to open the passengers door from the outside, I can open from the inside but not outside. I lived with it until now. The drivers door is doing the...


I have this problem every year with my car, 1993 buick regal custom, 3.8. What happens is it gets cold, warms up a bit, and ice or snow melts and gets in the door, then it gets cold again and it freezes. I go to unlock and open the door from the outside and this problem arises.

There is a vertical rod on the left side of the drivers side, right side of the passenger side, that gets bent, from trying to open the door when that mechanism is frozen up. Just bend it back, a TINY bit and it will start working.

I got tired of taking my door apart every time it happened so i cut a little "door" in the cover thing, so i can get at that bar.

I also tried coating it in grease and that seems to lessen the frequency.

Door will not open


simple solution. take the panel off of your door, and look for the rod that connects directly to your outside door handle. 9 times out of 10, it came loose because it didn't get inserted properly into the cheap plastic hole which keeps the rod connected to the door handle.
