SOURCE: Rear pass. door locking mechanism

I have been dealing with the same problem and I'm a little further than you are. You need two people to do this job. Open the front door and it will give you access to the hinge pin. If I remember correctly you can pop off the snap rings and pull the pins. This will allow you to open the door just enough to get the interior panel off the door to allow you access to the actuator. Unfortunately, both my rear door actuators have been done twice in the last 5 weeks, But they are seized in the locked position again. I,m pretty sure its not just the actuators that are bad. Something else is causing this and that is why I'm here. Good luck with that one.

see if you can pull the outside handle out a little & put some needlenose pliers in the opening & grab the rod to open the door. otherwise unscrew the door panel & get into the inside of the door that way.

good luck

SOURCE: I have a 2005 yukon

climb in the back with some flat blade screwdrivers and pry off the trim pad, some times you will find some "star"screws holding a handle or trim. Look for a metal rod going down to the catch mechanism and give it a tug and the gate should release, as to why it wont unlock, you could email me a photo when it is open (or before if you are having trouble.

SOURCE: The drivers door will not open from the inside.

Linkage has become detached. You'll have to pull the door panel. There are steel rods (linkage) that are held in place by a PLASTIC CLIPs (GM's better idea)... The clips break or come loose. Replacements are available at GM dealership but you'll need to figure out which one is bad. Take the old piece (or pieces) along with you so you can make sure you are getting the right ones. The interior handle and the exterior handle are on two seperate mechanisms which is why the inside doesn;t work yet the outside does. Hope this helps. Good Luck. If you need help figuring out How-To remove the door panle, a trip to your local public library in the Automotive books section should help and show you how the panel pulls off. A panel removal tool is a big help and is available at most Auto Stores. You make end up breaking someof the plastic clips that hold the panel in place but they are available at an Auto Store also.

Back near side door lock latch won't fully open preventing me from opening door from inside or outside on 2005 Ford focus possible causes


The most common cause for this is the door opening lever on the lock assembly is sitting slightly between the open and closed position and will not allow the lock arm to operate properly. I am not positive, but I think the lever is cable operated by the inside handle. You may be able to remove the inside handle assembly and access this cable and slide it in and out to see if the door lock will open

The child locks are stuck it only opens from the outside


there is a slider switch on the door(between door and frame) that you can lock or unlock the child locks to prevent them from opening the door from inside but still can open door from outside----just slide the lock switch to enable or disable the child lock.

if they are stuck/stiff---you may have to remove the door panel for repair.

Usually they work free with a liitle lubricant(WD-40) to slide easier.

The two back doors for a jaguar xj6 1994 do not, open email afernadez730hotmail.com


If the doors will open from the outside, but do not open from the inside - the child safety switches are probably activated. Open the rear doors (from the outside) and slide the small levers next to the doors locks (on the edge of the doors) upwards.
