Remove the interior door trim and replace the small connection from the outside door handle to the lock. It is held in place by a plastic clip that breaks on a regular basis.

sounds like the rod from the outside hande is no longer attached to the latch. probably broke at the handle. you will need to remove the inner door panel and inspect.you should be able to isolate the problem then.

Why doesn't left rear door open from inside?


Is the child lock activated? Don't know your model specifics, but on older models if you open the door from the outside there should be some kind of activation device that makes the interior handle inoperative near to the locking mechanism. It could be a simple 2-way switch (up/on down/off or vice versa). A turn button that is either standing proud that you turn with your fingers or recessed that requires a screwdriver/key/coin to turn.
Newer models (which yours may well be) are operated electrically. Is there a button on your center console or dash that has an icon something like a child or door with a cross? Hold that button for a couple of seconds and see if that changes anything. If only one of your doors is locking, it may that the other is not working but it may re-set them to work together.

Can't open the door


I'm sorry, but
"Can't open the door" does not give anyone enough information about your problem, Try giving us the year, make, model of vehicle and if you can't open from inside, outside or both.

Why does the front passenger door intermittently not open from either the inside or the outside and then all of a sudden it will work for a few days.


Door latch guts are worn. On newer cars they tend to be made of plastic and wear down. Get a Chilton/Haynes repair manual for your little BowTie and it will explain and show you how to replace the guts. Do it before it fails entirely. Other wise you're stuck trying to take inside door panels off when the door is closed.

Driver side door can't be open to repair it.


I believe that door can be opened. If you can open from inside or outside it must be a latch has come off under door handle...I've seen a cop once take the license plate off a car and stick it between the door jam by the door handle and slide it up and down and the car door came open...Worth a try..And a slim Jim down beside the door handle to catch that latch that's off would be worth a try to

Why the car can still can be opened from inside although it is already locked.


Locking the vehicle will lock it from the out side.
If you are trying to child proof your rear doors, when you open the doors, on each of the rear doors there should be a little button you can move to lock the rear door from the inside.
Please let me know if I can further assist you.
