Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

This can be tough to try and access with a bro***** *****dle.In some cases if you can locate the pull lever part of the handle that triggered the latch to release you can use a flat blade tool or pliers to try and pull or push it to open the latch but if it is completely broken (and the handle assemblies do break needing replaced unfortunately as they do not hold up as well as older models anymore) then you will need to most likely either have a AAA company come out and use their tools to unlock and open the door or a lock smith.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
