Which door is it cos rear doors have a kiddy lock-when you work the handle can you feel any resistance,as if the handle is actually connected or is it 'floating' ?

Actually, I suggest going to a junk-yard to get your parts. It will be much more expensive to get at your dealership or bodyshop, plus the huge huge huge labor fee. If you want to invest a few minutes to save yourself some time, look to see what other vehicles use the same door handle yours does, (it will be a toyota).

SOURCE: How can I fix the door handle on the inside of 1999 Toyota Coroll

It's probably broken, or unhooked. Just take your inner door panel off, and you'll soon figure out what's happening. Sometimes the rods get bent, or they come off the clip, or just need adjusting. And sometimes the handle itself is broken, but you can do it!

You cant. Your local garage might be able to but not the consumer. Go to pep boys or one of the big auto chains. They sell repair manuals for most cars. Around $20-$30...well worth it.

If it's not unlocking, The only way o get it open is pop off the trim piece that goes around the window. On the bottom panel there might be two screws to remove on each side. If not then it will pop off to a point, because there are screws on the bottom you can't access. Pull it back and reach down and find the rods that go to the latch. usualy the one that is horizontal is the one that unlocks the hatch. move it left or right to unlock it, try the handle to see if it opens. If it doesn't reach again and open it from the other rod. Pull up on it. Good luck

Testimonial: "Perfect. Could not reach the cables because of a plastic housing, but the process of disconnecting and reconnecting the cables solved the problem."

It sounds like tha door latch is getting stiff, it needs some lubrication. I wouls spray some penetrating fluid into it through the spot where it catch's the door post and work the latch by hand several times until it moves freely. You may have to do this several times, or over the course of a couple days to get it free. Don't be shy with the penetrating fluid. Once you have it working freely, respray it with a spray lube such as white lithium grease. This should keep it working. Don't forget the other doors. Hope this helps.

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

1999 Hyundia accent door handles won't work


Go to ebay I bought two new outer handles and two inners for my '97 accent. They are five bucks a piece you can't beat it and free shipping. Take the inner panel apart if you're going to change them yourself. You have the mirror guard that pops right off with a flathead screwdriver, then unscrew every philips-head bolt on the panel there should be roughly four screws. Then once you remove the panel, two 10 mm bolts for the handle which are inside the door are what hold the handle on. Good Luck! http://www.ebay.com/sch/Car-Truck-Parts-/6030/i.html?_nkw=1997+Hyundai+Accent+door+handle

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.
