It should be all the way over to the side near where the door catches you may have to remove a couple of things to access it though

2000 ford f 150 supercab back door on drivers side will not open


The cable runs from the latch to the handle, it sounds like the cable broke off one end or fell off,

this truck uses cables instead of metal rods to open the latch, remove the door panel and see if the cable fell off handle area or latch,,
the cable operates the inside door handle and sometimes the outside handle but very rare that it operates the out side handle to open door.

I am unable to open the drivers side door from inside the car unless I lower the driver side window.


sounds like the inside handle is broken it is a easy fix, unfortunately the handle for a BMW is normally a dealer part which will make it kind of expensive for a cheap piece of plastic.

My BMW Z3 Roadster Driver Side Door Handle sticks on occasion. It will open from the inside but not the outside. Then sometimes it works fine. Tried to lubricate the door handle from inside the door...


This is usually a symptom seen when a latch mechanism has worn out. I would replace the door latch with a used one. This is the unit that actually holds the door shut. You will see it on the side of the door. The door panel will need to be removed to gain access. Let me know if you need anything further.

07 BMW 750I HOW TO REMOVE OUTER DOOR HANDLE


To remove the outer handle, open the door and while looking at the edge of the door with it open, you should be looking at the side that the door latch lever is on, look near the top area and you should see a small black plastic oval piece. Remove that piece. Take a flash light and look inside the hole. There will be a brass lever inside with a small hole. Use a pick and insert in the brass slide. If you either push or pull the lever to or away, it will release the outer handle assembly. The assembly levers upwards when removing.

I have a 1998 BMW 528 I. The drivers side door latch will not catch. So door will not close or lock


Wit the door open, using a srewdriver, use it to throw the catch, then see if the latch locks into position. if it doesn't then a new catch will be required as the locking latch spring inside the latch would have broken

DOOR WON'T OPEN FROM INSIDE OF NISSAN ALTIMA 2002 ON DRIVER'S SIDE


There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.

Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.

Hope this is helpful!!
