Question about 2009 Pontiac G3

Open Question

The driver side door, key lock mechanism, fell inside the door when I tried to unlock it on my Pont. G3 (2009). I'm trying to find out how to remove the door panel and maybe get an exploded view of the door lock mechanism if possible. Any help here? Thanks.

This is only a possible solution to your problem. I had similar problem with my car. It turned out that the window locking toggle on the driver door not only prevented the other windows from being opened by passengers but also controlled the door locks. When I unlocked the window control I was able to unlock the door. Another possibility is the armature inside the door has come off the locking mechanism.

SOURCE: How to replace a window motor on the driver side.

I hope you're talking about the interior trim door panel and not the metal structure of the door. Be forwarned that a special body rivet tool is required. You can not get this tool at your local hardware or autoparts store. Also, you will most likely need to adjust the window once the replacement is made. If you are unsure how to do this, you may be better off taking it to a shop.

To remove the panel, you must remove the manual door lock slide and the screw behind the door handle. Remove the panel that contains the window/lock/mirror controls, then remove the screw under the panel. There should be a screw in the door map pocket. Carefully pry the push fasteners from around the edges of the panel from the door. The panel should push straight up. Be careful with the door handle and the wires for the lock/window/mirror controls and speaker.

The window motor and regulator must be removed as a unit. Drill out the rivets that hold the assembly. Disconnect the wire to the window motor. Remove the bolts to the regulator channels. Use one hand to support the glass while you remove the assembly.

You can not get a copy of the dealer service manual procedure unless you know someone or buy a similar manual. It would be cheaper to pay someone to replace your window motor!

R/R the motor on the regulator is easy. Once you change out the motor, replace the motor/regulator assembly into the door and window. Don't forget to connect the wire! Replace the rivets and adjust the window. Replace the door panel, making sure each hook and the door handle and manual lock rod line up.

Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: Can't figure how to remove right rear door panel on 2001 Pontiac

These are bad about those Cable operated window devices .. If it is bad get on ebay and get one ordered its your best bet.. Just take a flat screwdriver and go around the bottom of the door panel and pop it loose and up the sides .. there might be a hidden screw or two in the middle around the handles.. good luck ..

For the sliding doors you need to clean the contacts, there are 6 or 8 on both sides, just wipe them clean as they are probably covered in oil/grease/grime.

O.K. getting the door off is a little tricky, Their is even a screw hid behind the little red reflector. You should be able to locate the rest. Once you get them out, the door pops off of those little white plugs in most new cars. After that you need to purchase a power window regulator. That is what broke that made your window fall in. It looks complicated, but it is only three or so bolts to change out. If you broke the window, Call around the salvage yards to try & locate a replacement. Don't forget to make sure you get one that has tinting if your was tinted.

Not sure if lock has solenoid or electric motor, but either way, can you hear clicks or any prominent sounds from the door whilst trying to unlock it? you may need to put your ear on the door, if no sound, then wiring needs to be checked, then motor or solenoid, if you do hear similar sounds to the other door then the mechanical part of the lock mechanism has failed and may require a kit or replacement.

MY SCION XA PASSENGER DOOR WONT UNLOCK WITH KEY,ONLY THE DRIVERSIDE


try using a little graphite in the keyhole. If key turns and does nothing, may have a bad lock mechanism or a rod had fallen off inside. See that the lock turns freely. Don't force. Door will unlock from inside and still have a bad lock mechanism.

Driver door wont open


You probably either have a piece of linkage that has come loose inside the door or the latch mechanism is stuck halfway between "lock" and "unlock" (fairly common on some vehicles). You will need to remove the driver's seat to make room to work so the driver's door panel can be removed if you cannot open the door from either the inside or the outside.

If you can get the door open, then the door panel should be removed to inspect the linkage and latch mechanism.

I drive a 2000 audi quattro A6. my driver side door will not unlock from the key remote or with the key. when i try to unlock with the key it rolls all my windows down and unlock all other doors exept...


sounds like the hard wire attached to the key lock may be off or broken..this happens a lot when a car is "slim jimmed" or used a coat hanger to unlock the door.. or it could be from just normal wear.. the door panel will have to come off the door to be able to look inside and see what is happening.. simple, inexpensive fix for someone with a little mechanical ability

The driver side door will not lock - the other doors lock and unlock using the electronic key, but the driver side door will not ock either electronically or using the key.


the lock mechanism itself of the driver side door is the problem.

you may try lubricating the lock mechanism and you might un-tangle what is binding in there.

something could have stuck in the locking mechanism.

Central locking keeps locking the car. Unable to open drivers side door


Hello, we have a 2003 Kia Rio- problem as above- unlocking and then locking- only way in and out through passenger door.
This is what I have done and everything is back to normal- I hope it works for you.
1 Remove 25AMP fuse that controls door central locking from main box under the bonnet.
(AT this stage my passenger door opens- drivers side does not, the mechanism won't fully rotate)
2, Spray key with WD40 (or similar moisture repellent lubricant). Gently turn key to loosen mechanism- Partly remove key and spray lubricant into lock, have fun locking and unlocking!
3, Replace 25 amp fuse
4, Write yourself a cheque for garage labour and parts and wife brownie points!
