Customer Question

I have a 2007 Kia Spectra. The driver's side door can no longer be opened from the inside or the outside. All the other doors work fine. HELP! My husband is scared it will be a major repair cost. There have been no accidents with the vehicle.

Hi. The most common cause I see for a Spectra door to not open is that the screws that hold the latch to the door loosen up and cause the latch to get loose and not release properly.

Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

What I have done in the past is to get help from someone and hold the door handle open and use a decent amount of force and hit the door open from the inside.

If using this force does not get the door open you will then want to remove the interior door panel and see if something visual can be found wrong.
