Question about 1995 Lexus ES 300

Open Question

Door Jammed Hi. I have a 1995 Lexus 4 door and the front passenger door is jammed shut by a failure of the mechanism to release on pulling the handle. I had to cut away the interior of the door to get to the mechanism. By following the linkage action, while pulling the handle, I could see that the latching mechanism is ALREADY in the open position, but gosh darn it, it simply won't release the door no matter what I do. I feel that the only solution at this point is to cut the door open, but before I do this I wanted to see if anyone has a better solution. Thanks.

SOURCE: How to replace exterior door handle on a 1994 Lexus ES300?

Hello: You will have to remove the door panel no matter what, If it is a broken handle there are two 10 mm bolts to remove it, but you need to check the rod that connects to it, sometimes the clip breaks and the metal rod falls out.
Be Cool, Good Luck

SOURCE: 1997 Lexus front door will not open from outside

unless you are mechanically inclinde don't mess with it get someoen you love and adore to do it for you, you can break the tabs that hold the door on and it can get expensive the worst part is it might not open at all if you don't understand how to operate it unless you have one of the experts here helping you with it step by step, but could take as much as 4 hours depending on your ability to work with your hands. Some people just don't need to own wrenchs they are a danger to themselves and the public at large, not saying they are not smart but just don't have the know how and motor skills. I am telling you this so you won't have a headache on your hands.

SOURCE: 05 Lexus ES330 - Ashtray door wont open

Use a flat tip screwdriver to pry-back the door a little while shinning a flashlight into the ashtray, use another flat customized piece of metal or coat hanger to pry the pack of gum loose as the door opens. You'll find the gum pack or item has wedged the door shut - when loosened the door will open.

pull the door panel off and inspect the door latch. Sounds like you jammed or bent part of it out of place. If the handles are very loose, check and see it the door latch arm popped out of place

Hello, I have a 2005 JAG 4 door, and the trunk is jammed and won't open. I tried to rock it up an down,but its still jammed, how do I get it to open?


Is the latch mechanism stuck? of had the vehicle been in an accident and the trunk lid is damaged? If it is just the latch, try removing the rear seat and access the inside of the trunk that way. Then you can manually try to open the latch.

Same thing happened with mine. It turned out that the power door lock motor went out. Since the handle or the switch can unlock the driver's door, both of these mechanisms are connected. When the door lock motor goes out it freezes in whatever position, it was last engaged.

Nissan Serena sliding door is jammed shut


The electric motor is designed to release if you try to open it by hand, chances are the lock assembly has come apart in the door, and it is usually a $2 plastic clip that causes hours of frustration. to get to it you would need to pull the inner pannel off the door.

95 accord driver side door jammed


It does sound like the mechanism is detached from the handle.
The panel is fairly easy to remove. Just a screw in the handle where you pull the door closed, a screw behind the door handle itself and the rest are just snap in pieces around the permiter of the door. Just gently pull where the snap ins are located ( start at the bottom and work your way around both sides. ) The panel will then lift up over the door lock. Make sure you unplug the speaker and light and door lock plugs before pulling too hard!
