Hi. The rear swing door on my '99 Honda CRV EX was becoming more and more difficult to open and close, so I lubed the hinges which helped tremendously. Unfortunately, since then, the door seems to have "dropped" about 1/2 inch and will not latch properly without manually lifting it, which I have difficulty doing while simultaneously trying to slam it hard enough to shut. Can somebody tell me how to adjust/lift the door? Much thanks for your help!

Dome lamps operate from door latches. Most common problem is drivers door latch switch. The switch is built into the latch assembly and is accessed by removing door panel. Try spraying WD 40 into latch assembly and opening/closing door several times to see if this corrects the problem. If a 2 door with side opening doors to rear, possible broken wiring to the swing door where it meets the body
most likely a wiring problem between internal "radio" receiver and Driver's door lock system. It probably also connects to the other issue. These things are very complicated. I doubt any DIYer could ever figure it out. If not the dealer, perhaps you can find an up to date locksmith to help out.
What it is! some how your spare tire Carriage is out of alignment or bend or hanging on the lock mechanism You will need three hands one to lift the carriage and then pull the wire to open the latch ,that should take care of it. while you are at it tighten the bolts that hold the carriage.
The latch may be in the closed position even thought he door is open. Compare it to the passenger latch if it looks like it is latched you need to pull the handle and use a tool to swing the latch into the open position.
I have a 2002 pontiac grand am with both power windows and door locks. Everything else works except the lock assembly on the rear driver side rear door latch. I have removed the inside panel , aboth rods are connected. all power is disconnected to that door. I moved both of the rods correctly and the door will slightly open but that is all. How can I get it to release so I can repair or replace the latch and lock if nescessary ? I had the same problem only reversed with the frond door it would not close but after some trying I fixed that problem.
You'll have to use a screwdriver. Stick it inside the locked latch on the door itself, the hole that holds it closed against the car body, then pry on it while at the same time pulling the door handle up to open it. The lock piece should swing open and your door should close and open normally again.
if the click happens when the door is almost completely open then there is an over center cam that latches the door open so it doesnt just swing back at you .. the cam is visible near or on the door hinges ... if there is any loosness in the pivot pin then it will snap each time you go over the latch point .. heavy greese on its pivot pin might quiet it down .. if the click happens just as the door is opened then make sure the door front edge is not hitting the fender edge. of course lube the hinges and make sure they are not loose ...
Below the glove box near the center console is a black plastic box that contains the filter. Slide the door toward rear of vehicle and then swing door down to get to the filter. You can see the filter after opening the door.
