My 84 Passenger door has recently become inoperative from the inside handle.
Any thoughts as to what it could be? The handle moves, but does not open the door. I suspected the power door lock actuator (aftermarket) that I installed with the keyless entry.
Anyone experience this? I did replace the lock mechanism on the driver side several years back...
As always comments / advice appreciated.
Could be the handle itself broke on the inside... mine just did the same thing on the drivers side... or it could be something as simple as one of those plastic clips in there that hold the rods came loose or broke. Not too hard to take the door panel off and find out.
I plan on living forever... so far so good
I have the door panel off, everything moves as expected, but the outside handle compresses the lock about 1/2 more than the inside and works - where as the inside does not. It does not look like any clips fell off. I don't get why this just started.
I had my driver door lock replaced back in 95. I think that is where this is headed, all clips are on, I just have to pull the handle further than I should to get it to open from the inside.
I will start shopping for locks.
Anyone need a power door lock actuator?
It was the lock, I swapped one in from a low mile 88 formula and we are all set!
