Outside unlock door handle button not working on passenger side

Asked by May 31, 2013 at 11:50 AM about the 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The passenger side door handle unlock button (no clue what it's actually called) stopped working.  The driver’s side still works, but I’m wondering if there’s a “common” issue with this that I can fix w/out having to go to the dealer or mechanic?

I don't think it's a common issue. The handle or lock probably broke from within and will require a new part and tearing into the door panel. If you have time and want to, you can remove the door panel and try to access if anything is broken and replace the part yourself. Other than that a trip to the shop is probably in order unless anyone else can offer a solution.
