drivers side front door
you'll have to pull off the door panel and more than likley replace the cable that connects the inside door handle to the door latch. I know you can get a used on the web cheep
how do you know the cable is bad or broken? mine looks just like the used one I got.
It could be a plastic clip at either end of the rod or cable has broken, or the rod/cable has gone bad. Lastly, the mechanism itself has gone bad. Its a typical issue on older vehicles.
Thanks Giulio but I figured out the problem minutes after posting my question. I found that the cable was a tad too loose/stretched to where it was not openning the door latch when the handle is pulled. So I simply adjusted the cable slack by pushing the cable through the outer sleeve into the metal door panel about a half inch. I put back the outer finish door panel and the handle now worked as it should.
