Passenger door handle broke of the outside of Nissan pathfinder, now the door wont open from the inside or out. how can we get the door open?


Remove the door's inner (interior) panel and inspect the trailing edge of the inside of the door. You should be able to see the door linkage from both the inner door handle and (what's left) of the outer handle (try moving the inner handle to see how the linkage is routed. I suspect that when the outer handle broke, its linkage dropped onto the inner handle's linkage and jammed it. With a long screwdriver, try moving the inner handle linkage to release the door latch and then replace the outer handle and its linkage (a salvage yard may be the best source and a Mitchell body repair manual should show hoe the linkage is routed and attached. Good luck.

Passenger door latch does not open from out side


You need to remove the inner door panel on that door. After it is removed check that the rod to the door handle is still hooked up, You may find that it is connected but broken off the door handle itself. If that is the case install a new outer door handle on that door, hook the rod up and it should work.

good day, well sir your so close from opening the doors. if you find the metal wiring that connects to the door lock then you have to force it a little to let loose. Its gonna be a little tight coz the electronic lock is still connected. if its too tight try removing the steel wires from the power lock connection then try letting the steel wires again. hope this helps and have a nice day.

2006 1.9 passat tdi estate drivers side door handle fault


Under waranty? Back to the dealer. Out of waranty? Either a dealer, or a private shop that has a good reputiation. Ask your friends amd co-workers and family.

Child locks only disable the INSIDE handle leaving the OUTSIDE handle operating. Sounds like the linkage for the outer handle has come apart.

Need to remove inner rear passenger side door


On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you need to pull back the weather seal and then you can access the bolts securing the outer handle

How do I fix a broken outer door handle on he drivers side?


Is there anything connecting the handle to the door latch assembly? Is the lock cylinder in the key hole and secured? It just sounds like the linkage may have slipped off the door handle

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
