How do I open rear door when outside is broken

This is common. I had to disassemble the door from the inside. You can order a replacement handle from ebay. Look for the metal one so you won't have to do this project again. Then, remove screws at the main handle on the inside and on the pull strap. After this you should be ale to pull the panel out as it is held in with plugs. Now look for a way to release the door, swap the handle and replace. I'm sorry I can't be more help, but it's been a while since I did this project. Good luck!

Something inside broken i can not open the trunk

Gosh, this is a common one. I ordered a replacement from ebay... look for the metal version so you won't have to do the project again. Then, remove screws from inside the door that hold the main handle and the pull strap. After this, you should be able to pull the whole panel away from the door. This is where memory fails me, so start looking for ways open the door and remove the handle. Once you've done this, replace in reverse order. Good luck!

Rear passenger door won't stay closed

Door latch on door itself is in closed position if it will not close at all. In this case, open door and pull outside handle hard to pop open door latch. If you have door opening at random, door latch needs replacing or door catch on body is loose.

I need to replace the rear inside door handle on my Licoln Zephyr (2006). Do I need to take off the door panel?

Typical on most GM cars, the door panel will need to come off in order to replace the door handle. Sometimes you can simply remove the panel around the door knob to replace. However as stated above, on most GM models, you'll usually have to remove the whole panel to get at it.

You'll usually need a torq screwdriver, and a straight blade screwdriver, hammer (to reinstall the door panel) and in some cases a Phillips. Remove the door panel with care, because of the many wires and electrical connections inside, and to avoid breaking the plastic pivots that hold the panel snug against the door .

Try pressing down on the trunk /hatch and at the same time turn the key to try and open it. It might take a lot of downware pressure to finally get it to come open.
