My passenger door wont open from the inside any ideas on what the problem could be and how to fix it.

hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you .

saturn vue, 2003

ok, most likely the inside latch handle is broken .

these are made out of plastic and the common issues with these are they break where the rod goes into the handle .....

take out the screw that holds the handle to the door and see if the lever where the rod for opening the door is broke ...jazzmaster ...

Yes it is broken. does the whole door panel need to come off?


If yes, how do you do that?

No just the inside handle

what am looking to replace?


Is it a connection piece between the handle and the rod??

just the inside handle .

the rods that attach to it will be easy to disconnect once you remove the screw that attaches the handle to the door ..jazzmaster...

thank you


I think need a whole need handle. The connection is not broken, but the rod stay in place.

you are welcome .

they make a lot of parts out of plastic now a days instead of the white metal they used to use for the older cars ,cheaper to make but easier to brake ...jazzmaster
