You're probably right. But it may have just come loose. Either way, you'll have to remove the door panel to find out. Take the screws out of the door panel (usually in latch and pull handle) & pop the door panel off carefully do as not to damage any of the clips. Also, if you have manual windows, pop the ring off from where the crank handle goes into the door panel and pull off the crank handle. If you have power windows, just disconnect the wiring harness. If the cable just came loose, just reattach it. If the cackle broke, you can find them online or in auto parts store for 20-30 bucks. Good luck!
can you open from the inside, its the only way you going to get to sort this, failing that you may need to get a new door card and rip the one off the door at the top corner near to the lock latch and split the plastic and pull the door pin inside to open then take the door card off. sometimes you can do it with out braking the door card but would not say it will not brake. inside there is a plastic clip that the handle go's on then another bar to the lock. this is designed to snap if some one trys to open the door with force.failing that the handle part can snap where the bar fits to it. that you would need to change the handle.
I had to replace part No 8182408 - the washing machine door handle. There is a plastic bar in the middle of the assembly that broke because the door was opened too hard.
There are two springs, the latch, and the plastic piece that brings it all together. The smaller spring is the key, call it the L spring. It is shaped like an L and goes around the ends of the latch. The other spring is the larger and straight and goes around the tops of the plastic piece. The straight spring goes in with the crossbar facing on the outside of the washer. The latch with the L spring fits in between the plastic crossbar with the U shaped end pressing against the latches inside bar. The antenna of the L spring needs to wrap around the plastic bar and fit inside the straight spring bar. This applies pressure on the latch to stay closed. When the handle is pulled, it releases the pressure and allows you to open the door. The Metal bar is used to hold all the pieces together and once you have the alignment right, put it back into the door with the straight spring antenna tucked in the spots on the door, as well as the metal bar ends. Screw in the two spots that holds the assembly in place and you will be set. The door should open and shut easily.
i don't know about taking the panel off with the door closed, but you should be able to remove the inside handle. there should be just one screw holding it in it should be right in the middle usually it is covered with a plastic cap. once you get the handle off manually pull the mechanism and open the door.
YES!!! Samething happened to me!!!
I haven't fixed it yet BUT I know how to get in~You have to take the handle off...completely. May have to break the plastic...
You'll need 2 flat head screwdrivers.
You have to push the metaal part that would have been attached to the plastic handle and then pull the door out where it meets with the machine. Like where the grey inner seal is. Be gentle but firm handed. Think push with one driver~pull out with the other. Be patient as it will be fustrating the first time.
Good luch tho!!!
just do some shots of WD-40 in the door latch. Three good shots, then open and close door about 30 times. and while you're at it, do it on all of them. I had the same problem. Fixed it in about 5 minutes.
Door handle seems loose and not connected? Then the plastic clip broke inside the door. Take off the door panel, 3 screws, and door lock cap and plastic insert around inside door handle. pry around the bottom first, and go up, when you reach the top, pull up, please be carefull to not break any more plastic. you will see a squarish opening midway up the door toward the latch. reach in and pull a rod toward the opening. You see a broken piece of plastic on the tip? if so take it off and get the replacement part for it at an autoparts store, install the new one and your set. I have broke to many of these so i ended up bending the end of the rod and using a nut to hold it in.:]
IF THE HANDDLES ARE FROZEN HOW DO YOU GET IN AND OUT OF THE VEHICLE? THIS HAPPENED TO ME. I HAD TO REMOVE DOOR PANEL AND CHANGE PLASTIC CLIP FROM INTERIOR PULL HANDLE TO LOCK MECHANNISM A 99CENT PLASTIC PART THAT BROKE
Its very easy to do, did mine today, pull the door panel off, 3 screws 2 on each corner of the bottom of the door and one in the grab handle tray. Look at the door handle there will be a small plastic circle that pops off remove plastic piece and remove screw, lift door panle upwards and off. 3 screws for the new door handle remove old one unclip door lock and unclip door handle install new one same way you took the old one off.
Part is $26.00 at kia, takes 15 minutes to repair!
