1997 Chevy Lumin door won't open from inside or outside. Sign In

I have a 1997 Chevy Lumina. Recently someone kicked my passenger door right above the outside door handle. Now the door won't open from the inside or the outside. I'm looking for a little help on what I can do to fix it.

Please help!

Those can be a PITA.

Sounds like just the rods may have got knocked loose from the latch mechanism. Since the door won't open, pulling the panel probably isn't an options at this point. I guess I would roll the window all the way down, pry the top panel back as far as I could with out damaging it, get a long sturdy hook & light and try to manual open the latch.

Obviously you are going to need to make sure you have enough time to open the door, access the damage and be able to fix at least one side before shutting the door......Basically don't start doing this on a Sunday afternoon if you need to work Monday.....Starting this in the early AM on a week day would be your best bet....
