    Yes, I have the same problem!  If it can be fixed easily I will get it fixed, but for my '02 Sebring, I don't want to spend too much money on this repair.

First off, you'll need to be able to remove the door panel. there are plastic clips (Push in body clips) as well as a couple of screws that hold the panel on. If you do not have power windows, you'll need a tool available from most any parts store to remove the window crank handle. You can get a window crank handle off with a couple of standard screwdrivers (There is a small metal clip that locks the handle on) but this normally results in damage to the panel. When the panel swings freely away from the bottom of the door, gently slide it directly up to remove it.

Once there, you should be able to clearly see the handle assembly, look for a metal rod about 1/4 inch in diameter that is supposed to be attached to the handle assembly via a little plastic clip. if either the clip or the handle assembly is broken, the rod will disconnect and you will be yanking on a handle attached to essentially nothing.

Door rod clips are available through most auto parts stores for $4-5, handle assembly's you can sometimes get through a wrecking yard, or order from the parts store.

Once you have the panel removed

The whole handle assembly is about $80.00 if it broken. It can be broken if you have had an autoclub open your car because you forgot a key.

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

Driver side door


Hi Paul, I'm glad to help! Most problems with door handles that won't open the door is broken parts inside the door. Pull the door panel off and move the handle while watching inside the door to see what is broken. Once you've found the broken part, simply replace it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Paul.

Driver side front door will not open from inside


Hi Paul, I'm glad to help!

Handles that do not work as they should are usually due to a plastic retainer that holds the rod in place or a broken piece where the rod goes on the handle. Pull the panel off the door and take a look, move the handle and watch the rod to see if it moves and if its off on one end or the other. This is usually and easy fix and something you should be able to repair yourself. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Paul.

How to open the door on a 2004 altima if both of my handles dont work


There are f few ways. Bust the plastic handle off the outside . Make sure the door is not locked. If you can get inside the door this way and see a rod near the door handle. Push up and down [ usually down ] on this, door should open . OR Roll the window down. Pry up on the inner door panel by the rubber piece that clears your window. This piece should be able to pry up, enough to see the same rod I am talking about.Usually, these rods push down to open the door. #3 Roll up window, put a small wedge between the window and the door by the door handle. This should get the gap open enough to look down inside the door. Look for this same rod, near the door handle, and push down on it to open the door. replace Hope I was helpful please rate this solution

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door


Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

2007 Hyundai Accent the driver side door won't open from the inside. It opens from the outside so I have to roll down the window and open the door before i shut the engine off.


Either the interior door handle or the cable inside the door is broken. You'll need to remove the door panel and look to see what is damaged.
