Question about 2003 Kia Sedona

1 Answer

Rear driver side window

My driver side sliding door is catching on the rear window. The window latch has broken and the window flops open. Since the window flops open, the door now catches on the window. I can see that the window is sitting out further than the other side. The window seem secure but somehow has moved out. How can I fix this.

The driver side door on my 2002 chevy blazer wont close.how do i fix it?


Door pins are a common failure on that series of Blazer/S10's. Also, another point of contention that the door faces is a sticky latch. Basically, the door latch re-latches itself and when you shut the door into the catch, it slams into it and bounces off. An easy fix is a 3 part cocktail of brake parts cleaner. Open and shut the latch with a screw driver acting as the catch and your interior door handle a few times. P'Blaster, open and shut the door a few times with the screwdriver acting as the catch. Finally, a good shot of white lithium grease. Open and shut the door with a screwdriver as the catch several times. Once you feel it is un-stuck, actually close and open the door several times. If you notice the door rising every time it catches, you MUST replace the door pins (cheap fix). If the door still has issues, replace the door latch (and since you're in there, do some PM and replace the actuator as well).

I recently purchased a used 03 Chevy Venture van. The passenger sliding door doesn't open. It worked for 1 week and stopped. The driver side sliding door has a broken handle so I'm able to open that door...


Pain but fixable. Sounds like the linkage is not connected. Even a mechanic will have to remove the door panel and fight with it. If you can remove the rear seat from the drivers side side door then you might have room to remove the passenger side door panel to fix it. Usually clips are the first thing to break on door handle/latch linkages

Rear Window failure


3 routes

1. Could be a broken wire from the door to the a-pillar in the rubber boot. remove the rubber boot, and run the wires for a brake in them ( missing the return for the door latch switch ).

2. Problem with the door latch switch, usually the symptom is the door ajar indicator is always on, and dome lamp won't turn off.

3. A broken wire in the driver's side door sill. This is either towards the front, by the hood latch, or towards the back, where the loom routes up the c-pillar. It will be a single wire spliced to 2 other wires, and it looks like hockey tape is used to cover the splice. Might also have signs of water in the door sill channel.

Sliding door problem


You probably have a burnt out door lock soleniod, it's part of the latch, stuck in the locked position, you have to pry the latch from the inside, to release the catch, just replace the latch when done. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP

REar door wasn't closed hard enough and so latch didn't catch properly and now the rear door won't open with the remote, can I open it somehow from the inside manually?, can't find a latch or anything. 95...


you would have to pull out the interior pannel and and unlock it with a screw driver the latch has a small hole that you could fit the screw driver in and it will release the door latch I have open various doors with a broken handle and it seems that you could do the same good luck.

RR window on my 02 Lib fell and now that door won't open!


As a last resort, I might try something like that, but remember that the door is heavy and that hanging it from the latch assembly will not do good things to the latch. If you try that, I'd first open the window and tie the door off to the roof rack to keep the door weight off the latch. Likely the latch will not release by removing the hinge bolts, but it may give you more room to get the inside panel removed.

I have a 1998 BMW 528 I. The drivers side door latch will not catch. So door will not close or lock


Wit the door open, using a srewdriver, use it to throw the catch, then see if the latch locks into position. if it doesn't then a new catch will be required as the locking latch spring inside the latch would have broken

Nissan rear door


sound like the link for the handle is broken.
you should have a pull handle near the floor at the driver seat.
if you can open the door with the pull handle. then the link to the latch is broken.
what you need to do is open the rear internal panel to get access to the latch.

Glove box, LOCK BROKEN IN LOCK POSITION


If the glove box is anything like mine it is a modular piece assembled with screws.... let them break the handle.. get a replacement first from a junk dealer and have the broken part swapped out. Its like a seat belt catch in my 97 deville. The glove box in mine flopped open and the catch had broken and fell down the door of the glovebox itself. The whole door is assembled with philips screws and should be easily removed and a new latch put in.. whoever does it should not cost more than 50.00 in labor MAYBE unless you have a friend that would do it for a beer. I saw a complete glove box on ebay for 40.00 shipping ontop of that .. i saw the latch for 20.00 +shipping.
