Back Seat Car door won't open

Asked by Jan 15, 2017 at 10:46 PM about the 2002 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a issue where i believe the latch for the door handle is broken because
it will not open from the outside but will from the inside. It seems like a simple
fix so i would like to know about any tips to save my pockets from
unnecessary repair costs.

Check to see if has a child safety switch by the door jam. If not, replace handle. They are known for beeaking off

ok i'll definitely check that out. think it would be possible for me to repair the issue from the inside by removing the door panel?


Yes, remove door panel
