.with a little luck you can try jiggling it for a while youmight get it ot pop open, if not youll needs to remove it from under counter. its held under countertop by 2 phillips screws (dropping the adjustmendt legs under unit will give you additional clearance to acess the screw head. after sliding d/w foward only 3 or three inches you gain acesss to the strike plate thats locking your latch. youll need to replace door latch and/or handle.

What part do I need? It opens from the inside. The handle is not snapped.


Are you saying the inside door handle isnt snapped,but the door wont open by pulling on the inside door handle or is it the outside door handle thats not working??Both the inside and outside door handle has a spring and other components on the backside of the handle which cant really be seen unless you remove the whole door handle assembly.One of these components are most likely broken or the rod that attaches between each handle and the locking mechanism(part that locks into the door striker to keep the door closed and releases it too)might have come loose from the back of the handle.The outside handle is usually mounted to the door by pop rivets or bolts/nuts.The inside handle is usually mounted with screws,but it really depends on what kind of car youre driving.Youll probably have to remove the handle to inspect it for damage.Open the door and watch the locking mechanism for movement while youre pulling on the door handle.If it doesnt move when you pull on the handle,the handle is definitely broke or the rod has come loose from the back of the handle.

Need a new door opening handle?? the handle broke


You should be able to order one from Splendide. In the meantime, try using a screw driver to manually push the door release button.

Door handle broke, can't open door from inside but still from outside


the inside door handle railings probably popped off, its a long bent to shape piece of metal running from the handle to the switch, you will need to take the inside door card off using a screw driver and popping the clips out, peel back the plastic cover enough for you to see, use a torch to see where it has popped off and clip it back in, if you try using the handle and you can hear the metal rod moving around it mights still be attached but the retainer clip has jumped off clip it back in. should solve your problem, if its all still in tact check to see if the child lock feature is working properly and isnt stuck to the lock mode. cheers hope it helps :)

In my 1996 toyota 4 runner my driver side door opens only from the inside. The locks still work and it still opens but not from the outside. How can I fix it?


you have to remove the inside door pannel first remove the arm rest two screws then remove the door latch assembly then remove the crank handle by removing c clip around the wndow knob unless electric, next pop the lower and side screws out of the corners then pop the snaps up from the door remove the lock tab at top pull pannel next gently remove the plastic that covers the door and straighten the rod out on the inside that goes to the outter door handle, if it's not hooked up then you will have to buy a plastic clip from toyota to replace it with.

How to change it myself


get a manual from the library or parts store; usually a couple of nuts on the inside of the handle. Doable but frustrating.

If you have shaved door handles, usually there is a manual opener somewhere close. Some people install them under the car so it can be popped with your foot or sometimes they're located in the wheel well.
