Door won't open?
Posted 12 February 2007 - 03:49 PM
My passenger rear door won't open.. from either the outside or the inside.. in either the locked or unlocked positions.
I think what happened was one of my friends was trying to get out of the car with the door either locked or the almost locked position.

I suggest to Try first to Unlock / Lock it several Times, maybe it Frees the Mechanism. If not, try to -Carefully- Remove the internal door Handle, and Try to Remove the Door Cover. if you can, try to move the Lock steel Wire (goes Horizontally) but I think is very difficult to Take the Door`s Cover with the Door Closed...

at this point you just need the door opened so you can remove the panel and have a look. i'd start pulling apart what you can from the inside, the door handle trim should be removable at least right?

It's not likely to *work*, but it is definitely worth a shot..

it really depends on what the handles feel like... is there any resistance? a lot of resistance? clunking? exactly the same feel from both inside and outside?
once the connecting rod for the internal handle broke on one of my cars so I fixed it with a coat hanger... (:
recently on my ea81 wagon the rear passenger outside handle stopped working... just had to spray some pb blaster in there to loosen everything up and now it works fine...

finally took the door panel off and found that the child's safety lock mechanism had slipped out of it's proper position. it was basically locking the car with no way to unlock it.
