Had same problem on my 2000 Xterra last year. I found that the latch was not opening the whole way. Easy, free fix:
- remove first aid kit and pull ******** inside of rear door.
- use screwdriver top pry off plastic door panel (plastic push snaps will pop free as you pry).
- look inside door and lube/grease parts that move when you unlock door.
- you will notice the parts regain their full movement with some fresh lube.
- snap door panel back in place (wrap elec tape around plastic snaps if you need to make them fit tighter since they are a little weaker after being removed)
- good luck! you are now an expert!

SOURCE: 2002 Silverado outside Door Handle

yes. you should remove the inside door panel.

to do this, remove all the screws you can see. One in the door handle, one by the mirror, then remove window crank/buttons

the take a flathead screwdriver and CAREFULLY pry the panel off. it is best to pry where the plastic pins are holding the panel on.

reverse procedure to reinstall.

SOURCE: diver side door will not open with door handle (outsidedoor )

There is a small clip that holds the outside door handle arm (inside the door) to the latching assembly, so the door panel has to be removed to reattach it. Sometimes the little clip is still attached to the handle arm, sometimes they are in the bottom of the door & sometimes you can't find them at all... Rick

SOURCE: how do i remove door outside door handle on q7

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can disconnect the linkage connecting to the outer handle and remove the bolts securing the outer handle on

My door handle will not open my door from the outside but will open from the inside. I pulled it and heard something drop inside the door. How do I fix it?


You have to pull the trim panel on inside of the door to get at the back of the handle . Plastic probably broke , replace the handle . Mite be a video on youtube showing how to do it.

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.

Open your door. on the latch side of your door near the top by the back of the window you will see a rubber plug about the size of a nickel remove it and the handle bolt is inside the holethe other bolt you will have to remove inside door trim panel. if they are both ok you will have to perchase a new handle.

My back drivers side door wont close


Check the latch in the door, some times they will go back closed. to fix, grab a screw driver or something simular and put it where the latch is in the door, it will look as if there is a shallow hole. that is where the bolt or bar in the body goes to keep the door shut. anyway put the screw driver there and apply pressure away from the outside of the door and lift the door handle. this will let the latch release and you can push it all the way open.

The outside door handles do not open the door on front doors


You probably have a linkage rod disconnected. Don't stress out! Remove clips with flat screwdriver, remove other hold down hardware & expose the area in question. Check for repairs needed. You may have to disconnect wiring connections to get panel out of the road. Good luck!
