Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.

 

1) Sorry for the long delay.

2) First off I am checking to see if you have already resolved your concern.

3) If you do still need help, if there is anything more you think would help me answer your question, please reply with that info.

4) If you happened to leave off the year make and model and engine liter size or any stored trouble codes or anything you have done so far, please include that information in your next reply.



I am sorry you have had to wait so long for the first contact. Sometimes this happens when the question you ask is not detailed enough or its just hard to address online. Many have viewed your post, but have decided to pass. I will do my best to help you. I have access to many repair sites, so at the least I can provide something to address at least part of your concern if it is not something I can address from memory and experience.

I work on this site only in the evening hours 7 days a week. I am online normally from 3-midnight. Thanks for using our site, we will do all we can to earn your business, again sorry we did not get to you sooner.

I believe the problem is glass shards in the latch mechanism....we need to destroy the panel or drill through to release or what ever it takes to further the repairs....all rods are connected lock motor works I can see the lock move in the latch....but it will not move far enough to release the latch .... where to drill or how to release it ....we will repair what ever damage occurs....Mike..as always I appreciate the in put right or not....I have not had this much difficulty before....with ...any door

Since you do have access inside the door to the latch you need to use a air powered die grinder the cut the latch into. This will cause it to break loose allowing you to then be able to get the door open so you can replace the latch and glass.

I am not yet into the door....panel wont come off because of excessive lip to door jamb.....may need to destroy interior panel first....and yes cutting latch will be necessary to get door open unless there is another way to release it....thank you...anymore ideas would be appreciated....and yes you will get paid right or wrong....I appreciate the input....Mike

Sorry I misunderstood. We should be able to get the panel off which is a must. Lets remove the drivers seat floor bolts and get the seat moved back first off. Then follow the below removal steps.

Have all that info .. thank you though ... I was hoping for an easier solution....but I will proceed...Note this panel extends well beyond the door lip....and will be very difficult to remove with out breakage....but that is what it takes....

I know its not easy but you have to try before cutting the door panel apart resulting in more expense.

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

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

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!!!!
