Most likely one of the little plastic clips that hold on the rod for the latch rod broke, you will need to take of the door panel to find out what one broke and then replace it, and put the door panel back on.

So will it be a easy task for someone to do and should it cost much.


That all depends on where you have it done, most independent shops will be cheaper than a dealership, this one of those two bit part causing a 100 dollar repair.

Okay you are saying the part is not expensive. Okay i will look around to where i can go or see if I know someone that will help me. Thanks for the information. I wont go to a dealership for sure


right if it is just the clip it runs about 75 cents at your local parts store.

Okay thanks. What would your guess be if it was something else


The only other thing that pops right now would be a broken latch handle, the inside one, sometimes the little ear snaps right off.
