Question about 2000 Honda Civic
Last Feb, someone backed into my front passenger door. their insurance paid for the repair, but did not offer and recommended body shop. So, i asked around and was referred to a place. The door was repaired, though it creaked a bit when driving and was a tight fit. Most importantly, it would open and close. However, only a few weeks later, the lock jammed in the lock position. I took it back, they haggled a bit, and then 'fixed' it. Two weeks later it is broken. I phone my insurance company, who was not involved in the repair project, and am told they'll call the body shop. Body shop says they'll fix it. I finally schedule this past Friday to get the work done. (Use my car for work) I pick up the car, it works once... not twice. Door won't open. Body shop says: we can't keep fixing this. I say,i paid you 1000. to fix my door, no one else has touched it (it can't open, see.) He bangs at it from all sides (dropping keys... drama in background.) Finally it pops open. Of course, once home, it won't work.
Long story short: How do i get this fixed? Do I bite the bullet and pay someone else? What are my options? Can a body shop be held accountable?
It sounds like one of the locking rods could be binding up, or the locking mechanism is just screwed. If you have worked on small car componets before you might be able to fix it yourself. If you do want to do it yourself, shoot me an e-mail and I will send you pictures of what to do and what to look for.
