How can I fix the doors so they close again?

Asked by Apr 11, 2012 at 05:30 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier 2 Dr STD Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The doors dont close at all now. They just bounce back open when we try to shut them. The part that is
attached on the door is messed up.

The door latch is ether lock it self or it stuck open .Look at the latch you cane if its closed or open. if its closed take ,a screwdriver and hold the Handle open try to pry the latch open .and if its open try to push the latch close. if they do not work you will need to replace the latch.

there is also a door lock on the car body that could be locked. pulling out on a little lever that is flipped in the way of the latch.
