2004 ford focus driver door will not open when door handal is pulled what do i need to fix it

need to open the door skin (remove from door)
there should be a metal rod going to the inside of the handle if lifting the handle is not opening the lock you will have to bend it in such a manner that it will put more strain on it (tighten) from the lock to the handle then replace door and try again, f not the inside of your handle may be broken or damaged check it on the inside for worn eyelet hole or broken and replace as needed

How do I get y 004 focus to start when chip broken out of key

You'll just have to go to the ford dealership and get a new key. Probably have to tow it to them if you don't have a spare. They have to have the vehicle there to code the key with the car.

How to open door on ford focus when neither handle will open it?

Just go through the procedure to remove the inner door panel and then you'll see the actuator rod that goes from the door handle to the latch. Just spray the acuator rod at the door handle end and the latch end with a shot of pb blaster (wd-40 will also work) to clean and loosen it up. I did that very thing last week and the door works like a new one. The hardest part of the whole door panel removal is the mirror cover and the cover on the actual door handle. You have to remove the cover on the door handle to see the two 1/4" bolts that hold it on. Still a very easy job for the basic do-it-yourself kind of guy....mine took less than an hour (maybe just a bit longer) to take apart and put back together. At any rate it's still cheaper than taking it to a dealer so they can do the same exact thing and charge you 75-80 bux to fix it the same way. See uf this helps

95 Toyota Camry All outside handles broken off

I had the same issue with both the inside and outside door handles of my '95 Camry LE.

They are not too expensive. $15-20 each, sometimes you can find a set of four for $50. Try, that's where I just bought my new handles.

Replacement is time-consuming, but relatively easy to figure out. If you have the Haynes manual for your car, it will describe the steps required to disassemble the door paneling and replace the handles.
Have a Phillips AND Flathead screwdriver handy. You will need both to disassemble your door.

Good luck!

Broken passenger door handle

Same problem. I have a 2000 Suzuki Esteem GL. A year ago the driver's door handle broke. Heard a sound and then it was loose. Could not open it from outside. Had to open front passenger door, open the driver's door from inside and then go out again to enter from the driver's door. FRUSTRATING. My mechanic had to take the door apart to fix it. Just a week ago, my front passenger door died on me. Can't open it from outside nor inside. The door won't open. This is such a stupid problem that costs lots to repair. Never will buy a Suzuki again. Had too many problems with it (had to fix gas tank, doors that won't open, front axle...).
