Sounds like the connector rod inside door came off- buy a HAYES auto repair manual for you car- is easy repair- reconnect rod- they do vibrate out sometimes

How do I get rear door open 2004 Buick park avenue


What kind of problem are you having ? explain ! Can't open door power locks , inside an outside handles do nothing , can you unlock with key or key fob . Or is it a door latch problem ? If you can unlock the door but when you pull the handles ,an the door doesn't open , that's a latch problem . An that could be a tough one to fix. You would need to get the inside door panel off to get at the latch inside !

Driver side doors do not open from outside, inside handles operate appropriately. outside handles were pulled with force after recent ice storm. I am guessing a linkage in the door has been broken or...


The repair will require removal of the door panel and adjustment/replacement of the rod that connects the outside handle to the lock mechanism, or replacement of the handle itself.

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside


Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.

How do I remove the rear door panel on my Buick Park avenue


You'll need to 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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

1998 Buick Park Avenue Ultra Driver's Side Door handle


The solution to this problem is inexpensive and can be performed by anyone with enough knowledge to do an oil change. The handle consists of a little plastic hook ( positioned inside, cannot be seen by just removing door panel) that pushes down the cable to open the door from the outside. Since it is plastic, it is very common for it to break off. You can glue the piece back together but it wont last long; it is better to replace the handle itself. You can find the part on eBay for around $30- $40 and install it yourself. It comes in a primer black color, unless you dont mind leaving it black, having it painted to match your color will not be economical. Just make sure you do it when you have time to be patient; access to the door handle screws is limited and you need an extension for the socket....Luck!

Driver's door handle will not open the door


Take it to the buick dealer. As the daughter of a mechanic, it was a call I didn't want to make! The dealer installed two handles for me and painted them to match for under $100.00. Well worth the trip.
