Question about 2004 Lexus ES 330

1 Answer

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

I have a 2002 lexus es30. The driver's door have been shut for a week. Im not able to open the door from the inside or outside. All the information we have from the internet is how to remove the panel of the door but is always with the door open. How we can remove the panel even though the door can't be open. FYI the car is 2002 as mention before.

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

SOURCE: driver side door i can not open from outside

The outside door handle linkage has come off, probably due to a broken clip inside the door. This needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: 1997 Lexus front door will not open from outside

unless you are mechanically inclinde don't mess with it get someoen you love and adore to do it for you, you can break the tabs that hold the door on and it can get expensive the worst part is it might not open at all if you don't understand how to operate it unless you have one of the experts here helping you with it step by step, but could take as much as 4 hours depending on your ability to work with your hands. Some people just don't need to own wrenchs they are a danger to themselves and the public at large, not saying they are not smart but just don't have the know how and motor skills. I am telling you this so you won't have a headache on your hands.

You'll need to remove 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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: door won't open from outside.

I was having the same problem with my 95 Lexus. When I removed the door panel and looked inside I was able to see the small rod that attaches to the outside handle was not connected. I tried to snap it back in but it wouldn't stay so I pulled the rod over where I could see that the small plastic part on the end of the rod that holds it in place had one side snapped off. Should be easy to fix once I locate the part. Just did this today and haven't looked for the part yet.

The driver side door on my 2002 chevy blazer wont close.how do i fix it?


Door pins are a common failure on that series of Blazer/S10's. Also, another point of contention that the door faces is a sticky latch. Basically, the door latch re-latches itself and when you shut the door into the catch, it slams into it and bounces off. An easy fix is a 3 part cocktail of brake parts cleaner. Open and shut the latch with a screw driver acting as the catch and your interior door handle a few times. P'Blaster, open and shut the door a few times with the screwdriver acting as the catch. Finally, a good shot of white lithium grease. Open and shut the door with a screwdriver as the catch several times. Once you feel it is un-stuck, actually close and open the door several times. If you notice the door rising every time it catches, you MUST replace the door pins (cheap fix). If the door still has issues, replace the door latch (and since you're in there, do some PM and replace the actuator as well).

I have a Lexus 1996 ES300 and the passenger side door will open from the inside but not the outside.


The steel rod that connects the outside door opener from the door lock is disconnected. This rod pushes down the lever of the door lock when you pull up the door opener.

Yes, you have to open the door panel and inspect the linakage. Either something came loose and fell of, or something is broken..

Drivers do will not open


very difficult. you literally must rip the door trim panel off the door. its made to come off with the door open. sounds like the actuator cable for the latch is disconnected or broken. just because the lock looks unlocked that dosent mean it is, it may be the lock cable at the latch. the latch assy is located inside the door.
