Need some info
is this the far rear cargo doors of the van --- there is two doors a left and right --- which one has the problem ---the drivers side or the passenger side
and if the cables are broken to the upper and lower door latches ,,,then ware are the cables broken ???--- by the handle or by the latches ????
we can go back and forth on this page
if you remove number 12 in the pic above you can gain access to both cables and then if the cables are broken there , you can pull on both cables with a long noise pliers to unlatch the latches ,,, if the cables are broken down into the black plastic and you can not get to them with a pliers ,,,then cut the cables black plastic back some until you can get to the inner cable and then pull on it to release the latches ---
usaly what goes wrong on these all the time is that number 12 has to be replaced due to its broken , ware the cables attach to it ,,,the bracket moves around and then you do not have enough throw to open the door ,,,I have never seen both cables brake before...
on the right rear cargo there is one door latch and its in the center of the door opening ,,, if the cable going to the latch is not on the door latch anymore then you have to use a flash light and look inside the door at the latch and see ware the cable secures to the latch,,,,,there your will see the arm that the cable moves ,,,,make sure the door is unlocked and use your finger or a flat bladed screw driver to pull on the lever that cable goes to ,,,to open the door
does this help any
I dont know either --- I wish I was there --- but I would make sure its unlocked and follow either handle cable and what ever they went to is the lever I would mess with ----
I am out of ideals for now,, if you want I can OPT out of this question and see if anyone else has some info for you ,,, it may take some time ,
ok ,,,good luck
Ok - thanks for the info ---glad you got it open
