Question about Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

2006 Jag xj, passengers door cannot be opened either from inside or outside. The inside door handle is in a "half cocked" position and I have tried all I can think of with combinations of Key fob, door lock etc with no success. The locking indicator tab above the interior handle seems to work ok, but the main interior handle wont return to its natural position.Try the external handle and it is not engaging with any mechanism and just lifts and returns to its position. Any ideas how to fix it without taking the interior door panel off?

I would confer with your Jag dealer on this one. Removing the door panel with the door closed is a real problem and they may have an easy fix without risking damaging anything. From what you say it sounds like the normal door release mechanism is not engaged but that the lock is. All I can suggest is to wind the window down and to do a combination waggling the 'half cocked' internal release handle back and forth whilst at the same time physically unlocking the door lock and/or using the central locking fob; press the door into the door jam at the same time to take pressure off the frame catch.

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.

{: ) 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.

The rear passenger door on my 2000 silverado will not open no matter how hard one pulls on handle. How can I repair this?


open with other handle/inside or outside- if full crew door- if only one handle(half door)- might be able to "fish" down window track with coat hanger- then remove inner door panel and reconnect door rods..

The passenger side door on my 2006 Pathfinder will open from the inside but not using the outside handle. I removed the inner door pannel but did not see anything obvious. What should I look for? Thanks!


Is it REAR passenger door?
DO NOT overlook the small switch on the "CHILD PROOF" safety switch.

This can be your problem if it's only occur on the two rear doors.

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.
