Q: Car door stuck closed

asked by on

The back door of my car doesn't open.

The door handle on most vehicles is connected to a mechanism inside the door that does the latching and unlatching. The mechanical connection between these two parts may have failed and should be inspected by a technician. Consider having an experienced mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose why your back door does not open and provide the needed repairs.
