Q: Q: Door not opening from inside or outside

asked by on

The driver's side door will not open from either the outside, or the inside. It appears that someone damaged it in an attempt to break in.

In the theft attempt, the internal mechanisms attached to the door handles may have become jarred loose, or broken. This will make the repair a little more difficult, but not impossible. Have a trained mechanic inspect the door and repair the latches. Consider YourMechanic for your repair as our mechanics come to you.
