Passenger door handle broke of the outside of Nissan pathfinder, now the door wont open from the inside or out. how can we get the door open?


Remove the door's inner (interior) panel and inspect the trailing edge of the inside of the door. You should be able to see the door linkage from both the inner door handle and (what's left) of the outer handle (try moving the inner handle to see how the linkage is routed. I suspect that when the outer handle broke, its linkage dropped onto the inner handle's linkage and jammed it. With a long screwdriver, try moving the inner handle linkage to release the door latch and then replace the outer handle and its linkage (a salvage yard may be the best source and a Mitchell body repair manual should show hoe the linkage is routed and attached. Good luck.

My door will not shut the peace were the door connects to the metal u bracket is pushed in and cant figure out how to get it back to were it was like the other doors so i can close it


Your door like your hood has a latch mechanism which locks around the "u bracket" if the latch is in the closed position try some wd40 or other penetrating oil to help free it up and try working the inner and outer handle to release it. There is a small metal linkage form the outer door handle and a much longer one from the inner handle which may have come loose if it does not work either way. you would need to remove the door panel to access it and you can get a universal replacement if needed at your local parts store

Left drivers door will not open from inside it does open from outside how to repair


you will need to remove inner door panel, either the handle itself broke where the rod connects,or the rod fell off or broke at the door latch, or the door latch lever bent or corrodded, the outer and inner handles use the same door latch but not the same mechanisms or rods to operate the latch. Once you remove the door panel and the inner dust shield with the window up look in the bottom of door for clips or a rod or broken parts. and note latch and handle for boken or bent and missing pieces. once you start looking it all becomes self explanatory.

I have a susuki forenza and I need to replace the driver's side door handle. I already have the new part (door handle).


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can remove the inner door handle and replace with new one. If it's your outer door handle, pull back the weather seal and disconnect the linkage to the outer door handle and then remove the bolts securing the outer handle to the door

How do I replace a '94 chev Astro outside drivers door handle


You first have to remove the inner door panel by taking the screws out of the inner handle and arm rest. the outer edges of the inner door panel either has screws or it has clips that can be pulled out. after you remove the panel you need to roll up the window and you will be looking at the back of the handle. simply un hook the clips that hold the lockrod and the inner opener rod and unbolt the outside door handle. reverse the prosses and walla.

Drivers door wont open


You need to remove the inner door panel (will have a couple screws in the inner door handle and push pins around the outside. Inside the door are thin metal rods connected by plastic connectors. Check all the connectors, especially at the inner and outer handles. If they both failed at the same time, I would suspect the latch itself.
