Question about 1989 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

My Door is Stuck!

The door on the driver's side is stuck closed. When you pull on the door handle on the inside or the outside it doesn't feel like they have any tension/are connected to anything. Only problem is that I can't open the door to get the panel off and get a closer look at the mechanisms. What do I do?

You must remove the panel to access the door with the door closed, it is very difficult but i have done it many times. Have a dealer do the job.

SOURCE: 1994 Jag xj6 car door will not open from the outside

Hello,

I am sorry to tell you that the handle on the outside of your car connects to a rod that opens the door that is different from the one on the inside. It sounds that you need to replace your door handle.

SOURCE: Unable to open rear nearside door

Is your car door set up to override the lock mechanism if the door handle is pulled?

If it is not set to override, is your door still locked when you use the handle?

If the door is unlocked, is your door latch in the open position when you test the handle?

If open, close the door latch (not the door, just the latch) and pull the handle to see if this releases.

If it doesn't, check to see if all the rods connecting to the latch mechanism and the handles are all in working order

Cannot open rear drivers side door from outside or inside. door panel is off, door is closed. child lock is on. tried pulling cable, wont move. tried lifting up the child lock with a thin blade


Sounds like the lock mechanism is stuck on the locked position. Since you didn't specify make and model this is a best guess. Make sure the lock is in the unlock position and try manipulating the rod connected to the outside handle (since child lock is on the inside handle won't work)

I need written instructions on how to replace a outside driver side door handle for an 06 ford focus


Close/wind up the window. Remove the inside door panel. Be careful with power window switch and door speaker wiring connectors. Disconnect them before pulling the door panel away. Remove any plastic covers that may be glued to the door. Have a look at the door handle from inside the door. You will have some idea as to how to remove it. Usually door handles are secured by screws from the inside. Locate and remove them. Remove linkages to the door handle then pull handle form outside.

2001 blazer driver door will not close. what do I do?


Probably stuck linkage on either the inside or outside door handle. Try spraying the latch mechanism on the end of the of the door with some WD40 and see if it will operate properly. If not, you'll probably have to pull of the door's inside panel and inspect/lubricate the linkage to both the outside and inside door handles.

sounds like the linkage came apart on the inside of the door. Remove the inner door panel & u will see the linkage probably disconnected. find out where its disconnected & reconnect it. there may be a clip which holds it together which u may find in the bottom of the door.

I have a 2002 pontiac grand am with both power windows and door locks. Everything else works except the lock assembly on the rear driver side rear door latch. I have removed the inside panel , aboth rods are connected. all power is disconnected to that door. I moved both of the rods correctly and the door will slightly open but that is all. How can I get it to release so I can repair or replace the latch and lock if nescessary ? I had the same problem only reversed with the frond door it would not close but after some trying I fixed that problem.

Drivers side slider on 2001 Ford Windstar is jammed. How canI get it to open?


The door lock is not working. Operate the remote keypad, the driver's armrest door lock switch, and the overhead switch until you hear the latch work, then open the door. If this approach fails, 10A FUSE 11 in the central junction box may be open or the rear electronic module may have failed. Once you have the door open, apply WD-40 to the mechanical parts of the latch to prevent future problems.

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

Easy method to open a stuck Kia Rio door. Full credit to 'fastkia' for explaining how to open a stuck lock but after opening my lock by his method I found an easier way to do the job. You need a piece of straight wire (clothes hanger is good) and make a 3/4 inch square bend on one end. Wind down the window & push a tapered (plastic) wedge between the glass and the inside rubber to get a gap to work through. Poke the wire down beside the glass and pull up on the lever that is operated by the outside door handle. This is not the wire from the door handle but is the lever the wire connects to in the lock. While the lever is held up by your hook you can now pull up the locking button. Remove the wire from the door and everything works and it can be opened and closed as often as you like but don't press the button or use the key lock or it will be stuck again. The lever is normally held up by a small spring that has a sharp bend at one end and the spring will ALWAYS break at this bend. I used the same spring with a 'new' loop made from a section of paper clip to replace the old loop. Better than the original. No cost and it took less than 30 minutes
