Asked by singletracker Jan 09, 2011 at 04:04 PM about the 2005 Kia Spectra Spectra5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The cable has broken at the beginning of the interior drivers door handle. I see
how to install the new cable there. What I can't figure out is what to do where the
other end meets the latch on the inside of the door.

Trying to do the same thing. Where did you get the cable. I can't find one anywhere.

I think I have the same problem with my car. The driver-side interior door latch is broken and have to open the window to let myself out of the car from the outside. Any suggestions would be helpful for me too!

I believe that the cable is part of the door latch assembly on the Spectra. If you can get just the cable you'd most likely have to remove the black plastic covers of the latch assembly after pulling it from the door. Best of luck.
