1997 2-DR Yukon GT Door Lock


Asked by Aug 25, 2016 at 02:47 PM about the 1997 GMC Yukon SLT 2dr 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The door latch (at the left side of the photo) is in the closed position and I cannot see how to get it open. Consequently, the door cannot be closed properly.

This additional shows the latch mechanism (bronze colour, partially detached).


This photo shows the vehicle.


This photo provides a closer view of the latch mechanism, which appears to be the problem part. Turning the door key moves a plunger (painted red) up and down(inside the door) towards the latch mechanism. A nylon pad inside the latch appears to be the intended target for the plunger. The nylon pad is brittle and broken. Any suggestion for a source of a replacement latch are most welcome!!
