Question about Saturn SL

1 Answer

The passenger side door handle will open the door but it will not go back into place. You have to push the handle back. There was a load rattling sound inside the door and I found a 3" diameter coiled spring inside the door. Not sure how this spring is mounted but I'm sure it is the spring to help the handle go back into place.

I went to open the driver side door and the exterior portion of the handle came loose.. I worked it back in and it seems to work, I'm opening the passenger side door to get to the driver side inside handle...


the door handle is either broke or a part of it has slipped loose, either way, you'll have to remove the inner door panel to get to it, this is not difficult, a few screws and the panel is retained by push in type plugs that can be pryed loose. the entire door latch assy is held in by screws and is serviced by replacement, the difficulty come with very tight area to work in, and is irritating and time consuming, if you are not good with tools i'd suggest a good mechanic or body shop. always get a quote!!

I have also broke off my 2001 Nissan Quest sliding door handle on the driver side. Also the sliding door cannot be opened from interior... Any help is appreciated... Thanks


the child lock rod may have been extended...
open the driver side door, and with a skinny finger, push that child lock rod back in towards the rear of the sliding door
use the passenger side as reference
once you pushed it in, you can now open it from the inside handle

Can't get door open, so can't remove panel to fix door open prob


These door panels are held in place to the interior door frame with push-in fasteners which are located around the side and bottom perimeter of the panel. These fasteners are popped out by placing a screw driver or other flat tool between the panel and the door frame. Usually there are screws and/or small bolts which hold the arm rest and door handle portion of the door panel. You need to locate any of these first and remove them. some screws/bolt heads may be hidden by small plastic caps which cover the heads. In some models, there is a piece of molding which is snapped in around the handle or on top of the arm rest. Once the perimeter fasteners are loose and all screws are removed, the panel is lifted up to disengage it from the bottom window frame. Be careful not to move the panel too far away from the door frame until you disconnect all wiring connections on the back side. Those nylon buttons that hold the panel in place sometimes break off when you remove them. They are replaceable(auto parts store).

How do I access the passenger hand grip bolts above the door?


Check and see if there are two small circles where you would put a bolt through the handle...generally they are there, covering the bolt head.

My front passenger door does not open neither from the inside or the outside. it looks like the lock is stuck in the locking position and won't open from the drivers side push button or the passenger's...


hi deleon,

on your door, if you remove the panel from the inside, you should see a lever connected to the handle that is supposed to disengaged the door hinge opening the door.

your may have this part broken due to corrosion, or there is a possibility that the lock did not disengage leaving the lever connect to the door handle not disengaging the door hinge.

have this checked with a local mechanic or consult the service manual for DIY.

if you have other questions, just lemme know.

regards,

voodoo
