How to fix a door latch on a 1994 nissan pickup


I just joined 10 minutes ago.........I think I can help you.

Use a spoon or wide screwdriver to pop the plastic rivets that hold the interior of the door on. Takes some courage as they dont come away easily, about 8 in all.
1, Remove the window winders, by either pushing the "ring" that touches the interior till it stops and then slide the winder off the toothed stub.pop the cover off and use screwdriver/socket to remove winders.
2, Use old eating knife or wide bladed screwdriver around edge if soft interior of door and pry/pop the hidden plastic rivets, releasing the soft interior away from the metal or the door.

3, You may have to twist off the latch, just like a bottle cap.

4, You will see the wire coat hanger type metal that connects to the latch and locking mechanism.


If you have some grease with you you can also grease up the mechanisms for the lock, lock release, window, mirror.

That's how it is on my Volkswagen.
Good luck, Dave

Exterior door handle on 97 thunderbird


You will have to remove the door panel. To do this use a phillips screwdriver and remove the two screws under the inside door handle. Then lift and remove the section. Remove another screw from the interior lower left corner. Pry the window crank apart "if exists" then use a T20 torq bit to remove the screw in handle. Remove the panel by lifting and pulling at same time. With window in up position you can see inside the hole a rod going from the door handle to a bracket with a Yellow clip. Slide the clip to the open position and pull the rod out of the clip. From the outside of door under the handle there are two rivets. Use a punch and knock out the center of each rivet. Then use a 1/4" drill bit and drill out the rivet. A flat tip screwdriver will be used to knock off the rest of the rivet. You will need two flat head screws and lock nuts or to reinstall the handle. Lift out old handle with attached rod. Twist rod as you pull to remove it and install it into the new handle. Place the rod through the hole and look inside to be sure is will move to the location of the yellow clip.Install the screws from the outside and the nuts from the inside and tighten. From inside connect the rod to the yellow clip. Lift on the rod while closing the clip. Then test door handle. If it doesn't work properly the rod was not lifted or pulled outward enough. Redo that step until you get it right. Reinstall inner panel as removed.

The top won't open. First one side began to stick on the left front ball latch and now the right side won't open at all. Is there a simple solution? Should I sand down the ball on the left side? Can i buy...


When mine did the same thing, I just sprayed each mechanism with some spray lubricant to free it up, worked great. Same in the latches. WD-40 to the rescue.

I need to replace the batteries but I can't get the old batteries out of the screwdriver. I've pried and pried and the pack is part way out.


buy some Johnson&Evenrude lubricant (marine) .Spray up into the cylinder. then use vice grips to pull the battery out. Maybe wedge a nail into the push prongs to hold them in.

1965 mustang door and window problems


latch may be worn out. If so, you need to replace it. Otherwise, make sure it is well lubricated and that the striker on the pillar is positioned correctly. Make sure that the hinge pins are not worn either or door will mis-align sometimes when closing. As for regualtor, first find one. Changing it is pretty much a take-out, put-in and adjust operation. If regulator is riveted in, drill rivets out and replace with pop rivets or nuts & bolts.

Broken Door Handle on 1998 Chevrolet C1500 PU


carefully use a screwdriver or chisel to pry the interior panel off of the door...it's thin, like an upholstered piece of hard board, held on by plastic ribbed push-studs, every so often. Those studs can be pryed out and pushed in to reinstall many times if you're careful but I did manage to break one on my truck. Of course there is also a couple of screws near the door handle as I recall but they are visible. A small piece of triangular shaped plastic must also be popped / pryed off of the forward window area. I'm drinking right now, but I think you may have to drill out a rivet to remove the old handle assembly but it is really easy, just pick a drill bit about the same diameter as the rivet and drill it till it falls apart. Install the new assembly with a pop rivet of your own. good luck

I just went thru this on my 2002. The silver handle is actually plastic (I didn't previosly realize this) and had broken in such a way that it no longer applied leverage to the door mechanism. Everything still worked fine from the outside.
I got a new handle from the dealer (is one complete piece) for about $70. and took the door apart (much more difficult than it sounds).3 or 4 screws across the bottom - 2 in the flip up portion of door handhold and 1 straight behind the handle itself. Lots of plastic pop locks holding door in place - need to be pulled straight out vice normal slide up - proceed slow - very easy to break plastic pieces. Replacing handle requires you to drill out three rivets and replace them for holding new door handle in place.
Can do in about 1 hr with help and all the necessary tools - flat pry bar, screwdrivers, cordless drill, etc.
