SOURCE: tubular design deadbolt stuck in lock position. Door cannot open.

if you remove the screw from the deadbolt and remove the keyed parts you can see the plunger assembly. you can use a flat head screw driver and turn the plunger in. it will unlock the door and you will be able to replace the deadbolt

check the opposite side door to see if you can take off the inside door panel with the door closed. If you can, remove the door panel and find the cable/mechanism to the latch, move it to open the door and fix/replace.

Exterior door stuck closed manually retract ****** remove knobs KWIKSET


You will probably need to replace the latch assembly. There is a small rivet that holds part of the latch together, and it also acts as a pivot point for a small piece that retracts the latch. If it gets bent, the latch won't retract fully, but you might be able to push it back and get the door open.

Door latch stuck on volvo c70


It sounds like the actuators (usually stiff wires) from the door handles and locking knob are OK, which means the latching mechanism itself is probably jammed or broken.

You'll need to remove the upholstered panel covering the inside of the door (search online for "how to remove a door panel") and investigate, pulling on various rods or cables to get the latch to release. You may have to temporarily remove part of a plastic water shield under the door panel to gain access.

If you can get the latch to release, unbolt it from the door (usually from its side), spray every part of the mechanism that you can access with a light lubricant like WD-40, and see if that helps. Try operating the latch manually by pushing with a screwdriver to see what happens. Look for any broken or jammed components or connectors.

If it still doesn't work, but all the related handles and knobs appear to be connected and moving properly, then the latching mechanism itself is probably at fault. Removing it is usually a matter of disconnecting all the control wires or cables, but take notes on how they connect so you can re-assemble everything). New latches are available from the manufacturer, or you can probably find a used one online. These are normally very reliable items, so I wouldn't hesitate to buy a used one.

Door latch stuck


Bend down on one knee and use one hand to hold the exterior door handle in the open position while using a screw driver to disengage the door latch by inserting the screw driver's tip into the anchor hole and push the screw driver outward towards the car.

Nissan pathfinder rear door won't open


I have had this issue twice on my '98 Pathfinder. The hinge inside the exterior door latch rusts over time and sticks. As suggested in some other answers, the BEST way to get it open is as follows: Pull the latch open and spray WD-40 into the handle openings using the spray tube that came with the WD-40. You may need to repeat this. Note, when I use the word 'latch', I'm talking about the part you pull to open the door, not the lock, which is a separate part inside the door connected to the latch by a metal rod.

There are many ways to then hit the latch to jar the stuck hinge loose. To prevent damage, I folded up an old dish towel, placed it over the latch, and pounded it with medium force with a rubber mallet. It may take just a few hits, or it could take literally hundreds. Initially, the exterior latch will flop loosely. You can see if you're making progress by checking the latch periodically. It will gradually start to break loose and this will be reflected in restored tension in the previously floppy latch. The longer you hit, the tension will eventually be felt through the whole range of motion in the latch. Once full tension is restored, it will open the door.

The first time I did this repair, I simply considered it fixed and stopped working on it. Big mistake, because the locks stuck again in just a couple months and took a lot more work to get open the second time. These latches are cheap and easy to replace (check rockauto.com or other sites - I got my new latches for $12 each).

You must be VERY careful when changing them, otherwise you'll be opening up the door, which isn't necessary if you do it right. To change the latch - remove the two grommets from the door jamb at the latch. Use a 10mm nutdriver to remove the two nuts holding the latch. Care must be taken not to drop the nuts inside the door, but the nuts are angled slightly upward, so gravity is on your side.

Next, CAREFULLY pull the latch out of the door the minimum amount necessary to clear the opening and expose the latch rod that runs from the latch to the lock. IMPORTANT: Before removing the rod from the latch, get a pair of small locking pliers (long hemostat or needle nose vise grips) and attach it to the rod about 1/2" below the latch to hold it in place. This is necessary because once you remove the two nuts holding the latch to the door and the nylon grommet that attaches the rod to the latch, the only thing holding the rod in place is gravity. If you lift the rod more than about 1" while doing this work, it will disengage from the lock inside the door. I learned this the hard way on my first door and actually dropped the rod to the very bottom inside the door. Once the rod is secured with pliers, remove the rod from the nylon retainer clip on the latch and pull the latch free from the door. Installation of the new latch is the opposite procedure.

The second door was a breeze to fix since I didn't have to remove the door panel to retrieve the rod - the whole replacement took less than 10 minutes.

Stuck Door Knob with No Access!


I agree with your Hacksaw method. Very easy and very fast. You are going to want to replace the knob anyway so this does not happen again. Just Hacksaw that knob as close to the door as you can without damaging the door. From there you are on your way to access to the parts of the lock. Now you can replace that knob and never have this trouble again!!!! One less headache in Life......Hope this helps you ........Joe
