You wil have to pull the trim panel off hte inside to see if the fasteners are loose or the pivot is broken.

The trim panel mostly pulls off with spring clips after a couple of screws are removed. Pry at clips with a screwdriver.

How do I repair rear outside door handle?


It's physically broken. Handle assembly needs to be replaced. My brother complained about having to replace it once a year on his Toyota. He also warned not to buy used replacements because they are always "ready to break." He told me he could see the stress cracks in used handle assemblies.

How do I remove the external door handles of a Holden Astra AH 2007?


There are two studs on the backside of the outer handle, where it mounts on the door. They stick through holes in the door, and a nut on the inside holds it fast to the door.
First, or next, you have to release the plastic retainer clips on the rod(s) to the handle. Push the retainer clip off and away from the rod, and the rod should come out of the hole in the handle . Then you can remove the handle from the door.

I have a 98 jeep wrangler and the door handle has a mechnical failure. I've purchased a new external door handle but I have no idea how to get the old handle out of the door. Anyone know how to do that?


Hmmm usually change the entire door. From junk yard and rekey it or change cylinder. To remove the handle maybe remove from inside the door.

Inside driver's door handle won't open door. Over the past week it seemed like the door didn't open until the handle was pulled further and further back as time went on. Now it is just"floppy" and won't...


you will have to remove the door panel. It is likely the metal rod inside from latch to handle is jarred or fell off. The panel will pry off if you remove all the screws in the door panel and remove lock and window controls.

1994 Jag xj6 car door will not open from the outside


The door latch sometime wears out they made it out of plastic. I have the same problem and the latch is no good. These cars are made so cheaply. They charge an arm and a leg for them even the parts to replace the defective parts. Jags are poorly designed sorry but you may need a new latch
