Question type: General

pass back door would not open and a few weeks later the driver side back door would not
open. feels like nothing is connected to the handle on either side. how do you open the
doors to take the pannels off to check and see what is wrong?

1 Answer


I take it you mean when you pull on the handle it will not open. If the handle is loose, like nothing connected, then the plastic latch mechanism is broken leading from the handle to the lock. The handle requires changing and the inner door panel must be removed to do it. It is not a difficult job.
