JAguar door handles

I can lift the handle but nothing happens, and now even the door won't open when you try from the inside Drivers side rear door won't open. Both handles work, but the lock stays down. Even when you lift the lock peg the handles will not engange.

Locking and unlocking the car does not lift the lock peg.

You have something broke or not working inside the door. You have a huge problem. You will need to remove the door panel with it closed which is going to be hard to do. Once you can get into the inside of the door you will be able to inspect the linkage and figure what is the real problem inside. The door lock assembly will never work correctly till you find out if a clip broke and you can't know that till looking inside

SOURCE: Driver side exterior door handle pulls the locking

Take the door panel off the inside of the door. (Should involve screws at the bottom, plus bolts through the interior handle. Then pull out at the bottom, and lift upward Google for expedition door panel removal for more specifics if needed).

It sounds like the exterior handle linkage is binding against the lock button linkage. Actually looking in while pulling the handle would confirm. You then should be able to just bend the rods a bit to move them apart.

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.

SOURCE: the door handle on my gmc safari has a broken door handle

You more than likely will have to remove the interior panel on the door which will be fun and take some time. Once you have it removed you should be able to manually operate the linkage and get it opened. I would be ready to locate a new panel just in case you break the original one, but they usually have some give to them if you take it slow. You might try removing the speaker also if you have one in the back door. It might give you enough room to use a stiff wire with a hook bent in it to operate the linkage.

Door will not open 2002 x type jaguar


The cable that goes to the inside door handle has fallen off, you have to remove the inner panel and look at the back of the handle, you should see a cable, most likely the cable fell off the retaining slot. Just push it back on until it bottoms out and replace the panel. This is common with door slamming, on x-types.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door


Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

1994 Jag xj6 car door will not open from the outside


The door latch sometime wears out they made it out of plastic. I have the same problem and the latch is no good. These cars are made so cheaply. They charge an arm and a leg for them even the parts to replace the defective parts. Jags are poorly designed sorry but you may need a new latch
