This is my newest problem. My driver door, as of about 2 hrs ago, will not open up from the outside. I can open it from the inside, no problem. Every one of my various other doors open, no problem. I just can"t it seems ~ to open my door indigenous the outside... And yes, the is unlocked

.Any suggestions?Thank girlfriend much!
I don"t know either. However I have the same problem with mine passenger door. I"d love to recognize what it is prior to I pull the door apart.

It"s the door take care of itself. Do a search and you will find around 10,000 others that have had actually the same issue. Replace the door handle and also problem solved, or you deserve to pull the door personally (which you will need to do anyways) and also clean it. Though that is just a temp fix, it will return in ~ the many inopportune time.If you need to get in, simply push in top top the door a tiny and pull the take care of at the exact same time. Need to open right up then. That"s what i do because I am also lazy to solve mine.

Mine walk that periodically too. It happens the many when its really warm out.The emphasis handles are simply a crappy style IMO. I"ve learned how to occupational with the so it doesn"t stick.
Thanks anyone for her really rapid replies! I type of figured it may be the door handle... That looked like it to be heading south once I to buy the car anyway. Room they basic to replace... For someone that knows nothing about cars?!
Hmm.... They are not the hardest things to take it apart. Hopefully you have actually a haynes manual though because it does assist and my ide is to take it it apart and find out what"s not correct first. Then depending upon what you need either go to Ford and buy the part you require or go to a junk yard and also buy the whole assembly if girlfriend can uncover it.
Thank you for the help! Is this the part I need? http://www2.partstrain.com/store/index.php?Ntt=Door Handle&N=1616+10338+4294967264+11921And perform I need any type of other components to go with this?

That would be it, and I don"t think so.... But I"m pretty certain Ford charges about the same for them, and also Mike
Hilbish Ford is a site sponsor and also does offer some decent deals. Check his price also, speak to him though.

Great, thanks! One think ns should cite that I"ve noticed an ext lately is the inside manage seems a tiny harder come open... Almost like miscellaneous is stuck. Would certainly this be a different part?

NOOOOOOOOO. Try spraying the down through WD-40. Mine was doing the very same thing, and also it simply needed lubed up. I haven"t had the difficulty since. Ns think I offered WD-40. That may have been some various other kind of lub though. Just take the inner door dashboard off. If that doesn"t solve it climate replace.
Thanks! Ill stimulate the component just in case and also get part WD-40 too. Many thanks everyone... Currently my next challenge is acquisition the door panel off without break anything
^^^ WD-40 FTW, just spray a decent amount around the latch area the the door jamb. It worked wonders for me.

One thing that reasons this through these car is not keeping the latches clean. If you could go acquire some brake/parts cleaner and some spray white lithium grease, this would do. Just clean the latch through the opened on the door, BE sure TO NOT obtain THE CLEANER ~ above THE DOOR PANEL!. Let it dried then spray the latch v the grease. That will save them in good working order. I think you just called me about the door handle? ok be wait to listen from girlfriend tomorrow. Mike

I am currently trying to resolve my door handle on mine 07 focus. Took apart the door panel and took out the handle and looks identical to the brand-new one i bought, not damaged or missing any pieces. Ns looked inside and also there is nothing that the door handle catches to open. Anyone have the exact same problem?
"...there is nothing the the door handle records to open."Because it"s broken. A tab on the "door reinforcement" component as it"s dubbed is the most common fault for the issue. The tab starts to break as soon as the latches tighten up due to the fact that they are old and have operation dry of grease.
