see if you can't take off a little trim piece around the handle, and try to get the handle out. With luck, the plastic piece at the handle broke, and maybe you can reach in and grab the rod with long nose pliers and tug on it to open the door

Driver side door won't close. small white plastic piece in door latch, keeps hitting something and won't catch and close


Take a flat head screw driver and with some effort move that little white piece to the left or right. Give it a little spray with some wd40 or some sort of penitrating oil. If you have trouble moving this piece with the screwdriver try lifting the door handle while you pry at the piece

How do i remove the door panel on my ford98 van


Almost all door panels can be taken off by taking door handle assembly off. Popping the window handle and the "e" ring from it if you do not have electric windows and starting at the bottom pull the on the panel and the plastic pop pieces should pop out...then pull up on the door panel and swing out. You may not have to undo the window handle depending on why you need to do this and thanks for using FixYa.

1990 Honda Accord CB. When I shut the door I locked it at the same time. The door is now stuck locked but the popper is in the unlocked position. So it thinks it is unlocked when it actually isn't. Then...


You'll have to use a screwdriver. Stick it inside the locked latch on the door itself, the hole that holds it closed against the car body, then pry on it while at the same time pulling the door handle up to open it. The lock piece should swing open and your door should close and open normally again.
