Q: Doorlock and door opener broken

asked by on

The driver's side doorlock and door-opener mechanism are broken.

It sounds like the door latch needs to be removed and replaced. The door latch and locking mechanism are built into the same part and can easily be replaced. I would recommend having a technician from YourMechanic come out and replace the door latch as needed.
