hi,
all of a sudden my front passenger door wont open from inside.
removed panel tp look. the cable from the handle to the opening mechanism is ok but it wont pulll the lever to open the door. i can open it by pushing on the bottom of the lever with a screwdriver, but the lever seems stuck at top where the cable pulls on it. it opens fine from outside. can anybody
give advice? it is very close quarters in the door. cannot see in there too well.
the linkage is all in place it just seems something is blocking the lever to pull with the cable. thank you in advance

hi again i figured it out.
in case any are wondering it was the 10 dollar cable from the handle to the lock assembly. there are two plastic tabs on the handle end. they were broken. thus causing the handle not to pull the cable enough to open the door. 10 bucks and an hour trying to line up the pin on the lock end and its fixed! thanks anyway

billyroo,

I have this same issue with my 98 V70 driver's door. I would love to get into the door, but can't figure out how without breaking something. I would appreciate any advice on this one too.

Hi there, I have the same problem. I have located the source of the problem after pulling the internal panel out - the plastic tabs on the cable connecting to the door handle has broken off and the plastic housing on the handle end also appears to be broken. It looks like I can just replace the handle and the cable but I can't see how to disconnect the cable at the door end. Can anyone shed any light on this?

ok i have replaced 3 out of 4 lock actuators. it involves taking the panel off and taking that cable out. i did a google search on how to remove the panel and i found a video on youtube that shows you how to remove the panel and remove the actuator (also involves removing the cable from the door). if anyone needs the interior handle and cable i think i have 1 or 2 of them in my garage. email me if you need it, i'll just charge you for shipping costs.


Edit on 8/7/10, i do not have any of these cables left. glad to help.
