Rear door wont open from outside
After a snow storm, the doors freezed. Now that the doors all unfroze, the rear sliding door
still wont open from the outside however, it can still open and close properly from the
inside. How can i fix this?
Maybe the outside handle was tweaked from using it too heavily while trying to open that frozen door- did you use a gentle hand when trying to open it? or did you have a 500 pound gorilla grunting while trying to rip the handle from the door? Just a guess, but a mechanic may have to go into the door to see if the handle is broken or if a connecting rod is bent
There's a rod that goes from the handle to the latch. Sounds like the "ear" that the rod goes into, on the handle, has broken off. HTH. -Jim
I had this problem with my 2007 Nissan Quest- I used https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AzHPz7zLPQ - it was easy and took about 15 minutes
