SOURCE: door in back cant open from outside and inside

I'm sure VW had a recall to replace door lock mechanisms around that age, check with your dealer. If the door and window on the same door are not working it could be lack of power to that door, check the wiring harness connection is still plugged in and ok on the b pillar (b pillar is the vertical panel between front and rear door), remove rubber gaitor bellows and check connections.

SOURCE: Front driver door won't open from the inside only

The linkage is probably broken or snapped out of place from inside the door panel.
You'll feel that the handle is much easier to move than the other doors.

If you are confident and able, take the door apart removing the screws and snap pieces and look for the missing linkage. It's usually a snap piece that holds a rod in place on the back of the handle. They break all the time, or dry rot, or jarr out of place. They're easily available at your local auto parts place or even dealership for just a few bucks!

Good luck!

Open door manually


can it open from the outside? There is a child safety lock inside the door when open it could have been put on child proof not allowing a young child to open the door from the inside but it will still open from outside. if this is not the problem then your rod has disconnected from the latch mechanism inside the door, you may need a slim jim tool or try to remove door panel from inside, this will be difficult when door is shut but maybe possible depending on the door panel itself, they may have some screws but most just snap in.

I cant open my door from the inside of my 01 isuzu rodeo. Opens fine from outside but not the inside.


You need to remove the door trim to expose the inside mechanism that opens the door from the inside, look for a broken cable or a missing link to the inside handle, your problem will be there.

My passenger side door stoped opening from the outside. For one day i had to always open the door for passengers from my drivers seat. Now the inside wont open the door either. The outside handle is...


{: ) The passenger door trim panel should be removed, and the inside inspected carefully for any binding of linkages, stuck up levers or cables, or worn out grommets, broken pieces, before deciding for a doorlatch replacement.

I have a 98 accord and i cant open the driver door from the inside or outside ...what is the cheapest solution to getting this door open???


In all probabilty, the metal rod that runs from the outside handle down to the locking mechanism has become dislodged. This same rod also operates the inside door handle. Either that, or one of the plastic connecting levers to the same rod has broken. For this repair you will have to dismount the inside panel of the door. Search in this site for the steps to disassembling the panel. I think i wrote about it once.

I cant open the drivers door from the inside or the outside


The security guard knocked off the internal door handle and lock linkage, with the slim jim. It will be necessary to remove the door trim and re-attach disconnected linkage(s). Easier to remove trim with glass down, then repair with glass up
