i have a 2003 and ive looked around for this specific issue but havent turned up anything. i cant open the driver side door from the inside. it sometimes opens, but like 1 out of 20 attempts.

  • pulling on the latch rod opens it every time.
  • i dont see any broken pieces of plastic on the handle or on where the rods connect to.
  • its hard to tell in the confined space, but i dont see anything wrong with the latch mechanism.
  • door manual lock and electric lock works fine.
  • door opens fine from outside.

handle in closed position:

Motor vehicle Automotive exterior Automotive fuel system Auto part Gas

handle closed and rod connector:

Automotive tire Motor vehicle Bumper Automotive exterior Automotive wheel system

handle open:

Gas Automotive wheel system Motor vehicle Auto part Automotive exterior


Sleeve Textile Grey Bag Automotive exterior

rod relaxed and engaged:

Automotive tire Motor vehicle Bumper Automotive exterior Gas
Motor vehicle Wood Gas Automotive exterior Fixture

latch open and closed:

Automotive lighting Fixture Door Automotive tire Automotive exterior
Automotive tire Door Automotive lighting Fixture Vehicle door

thanks for your time and any ideas would be appreciated.

The rod that attaches the inside handle, is that hole worn out? Is there a clip that snaps into place for the rod that fits tight? Looking at the handle, I don't see where the rod is suppose to attach.
