The handle mechanism wears over time. I went on eBay, bought a color matching handle for under $20 and replaced it myself. You have to be careful when removing the plastic panel bezel that surrounds the handle, drill out two rivets and your door will open like new!

Take the door skin off one person looks inside the door and one person pulls the handle easy and you will be able to see where it is sticking

How to open a stuck door on 96 chevy 1500


A mechanics worst nightmare. You have to somehow remove the door trim on the inside to get to the latch and lock mechanisms to release them manually to open the door. Hard to explain but thats basically the idea. Keep in mind that there are probably plenty of replacement door trims in the junkyard so don't be afraid to damage the one you have to gain access.

Latch at bottom of 3rd door will not open


Pull the Door Handle on the INSIDE of the REAR DOOR, Pull HARD... THEN PUSH IN on the door and then pull back. Mine releases with a Bump of my hip. This is a common issue with these trucks. If you can not get it loose that way, then use a flat screwdriver once you pull the handle to get it to release. You can adjust it to make it work normally,,, I am just too lazy to do mine

Had the same problem with my 99 ram. The problem is the bottom latch. It freezes up due to under use. The only way I could get mine open to fix it was to pull the door handle and get inside the cab and kick the door at the bottom at the same time as pulling the handle to get the latch to let loose. Had to kick it hard and several times. Good luck

How do i change the latch inside the pass side door on a 1998 chevy truck


First you have to remove the trim ring around the interior door handle. remove the screws from the molded handle. pry the bottom of the door cover from the steel door at one corner and work around to the other side. lift up on door panel and it will come away from the door glass. then disconnect any wireing. Remove rivet at broken door handle and push assembly to the rear of the truck. detach the rods. replace with new handle and install in reverse order.

My door handle wont open my door on the drivers side. I have to roll down my window to open the door from the outside latch. Is it repairable, or do I have to replace any parts?


I have shaved door handles on a 2000 chevy silverado and the drivers side door just recently stopped opening it seems like its completely locked out and the door is closed so i cannot get to the bolts of the latch assembly when i hit the unlock button it unlocks half way and when you go to open the door it relocks itself even if you manually try to unlock the door and hold the lock forward it still wont open

The tailgate latch on our 2006 Chevy truck is in the open positio


there are little metal rods that connect to the handle of the tailgate, just like the rods that connect your door handles to the door hinges and lock mechanism. just pop off the plastic cover over the tailgate handle and check and see if the rods are still connected to the handle.
