Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** would be happy to assist with this today.

When you attempt to open the door does it feel loose or do you feel any resistance? Do you have access to any tools to remove the door panel?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
the door wont open can you pull panel with it closed it doesnt look like it.
Mechanic for Acura: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 8 months ago

You will not be able to completely remove the panel with the door closed, but you should be able to get the top/side pulled back enough to access the door handle cable inside. Once you get a bit of access you should be able to fit some needle nose pliers in there to grab the cable and open the door

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
