    Used lube on the latch- didn't help. Seems to happen when the temps are below freezing.

Could be a handle linkage problem --- I would take your car to a auto locksmith and see if they have any ideas.

    all handle operation is soild linkages -- but I have seen vehicles come into the shop where in fact water has frozen up the latch mechanism. with the door open - squirt some Teflon based lube spray on and in the latch, this will help repel any water from resting on and freezing up the parts.
    have a great New Year.

    Lube on the latch makes sense. I just got the car a few months back, so learning about. Was strange that it would open from the inside.

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.

Range Rover Passenger Door Will Not Open


I have a 2002 land rover discovery and my passenger front door won't unlock with the interior lock button on the dash or with the key fob. The only way to unlock the door is to pull the handle on the inside of the door. Is the actuator bad?

Please help

Broken passenger door handle


Same problem. I have a 2000 Suzuki Esteem GL. A year ago the driver's door handle broke. Heard a sound and then it was loose. Could not open it from outside. Had to open front passenger door, open the driver's door from inside and then go out again to enter from the driver's door. FRUSTRATING. My mechanic had to take the door apart to fix it. Just a week ago, my front passenger door died on me. Can't open it from outside nor inside. The door won't open. This is such a stupid problem that costs lots to repair. Never will buy a Suzuki again. Had too many problems with it (had to fix gas tank, doors that won't open, front axle...).

Sounds like the plastic clip that connects the lock has broken however regardless of fault the inner door panel has to be removed to diagnose and repair.It could also be inner door lock assembly.
