Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra
I recently experienced losing the ability to manually lock and unlock my driver's side front door. The door, up until yesterday was able to be locked and unlocked with the remote keyless entry transmitter. Now, I have to physically turn the key in the door lock tumbler, which is the only way I am able to enter the vehicle. The inside locking lever does not appear to be opening to it's fullest capacity. After exiting the vehicle, I at that point can relock the vehicle using the keyless entry remote. It appears something is binding up the lever and is to say the least annoying. How difficult a repair is it? And, could anyone offer the proper procedure? I am on a fixed income and I feel if I take it to the dealer, I'm in for refinancing my home to pay the repair bill. Thanks.
There is a "bar" that attaches to the lock like a lever pulling and pushing the door. Over many years and hundreds of unlockings it breaks from the plastic...I am in the same boat. It won't cost that much....take it to the dealer..the part is around $13.00 to replace
