You are watching: Subaru door won t open from outside


I have a 1996 impreza lx coupe and my passenger door wont open, I gained it come randomly open as soon as with my key on the driver side with the electrical lock, therefore i had the ability to take the door dashboard off however I stupidly close up door the door v the home window down and also now ns cant open it again, all the rods look fine, wires are fine, every the rods do their job. Once i traction the door manage i don"t obtain that resistance in the handle that girlfriend feel once the door opens, it just moves normally. Ns tried pulling and pushing the rods to try to open up the door yet no success. If that is the latch have the right to i use a mechanically latch instead of the electric one? likewise does it have to come indigenous a coupe or will a sedan or wagon one work as well? also how do i get my door open!? this is control me crazy, thank you
You should have the ability to open door indigenous the outside then eliminate the dashboard to reconnect the mechanical hook because that door open from the inside. Happened to me the other day.When you have actually no resistance as soon as open native inside, the hook come off.

The door won"t open up from either side, I have actually tugged and also pulled on the rods for about an hour and also nothing
The door won"t open from one of two people side, I have tugged and also pulled on the rods for about an hour and nothing
Didn"t work, my neighborhood mechanic said me he"ll need to drill right into the door from the inside but that"s worst situation scenario, I"ll keep trying
I remember just need to eliminate panel, reach my hand in to pull/push the lever manually then door opens since it"s a mechanically lock. But it sure sounds that busted due to the fact that you should be able to open native outside, the inside lever hooks come the key level which operates from outside.Is your door panel gotten rid of or still attached come door in closeup of the door position? If quiet attached come door, most likely you need to drill.

After about another hour the pulling and also tugging i quit and also took it come the mechanics, they were able come actually open it! So my door is fixed, it was the latch that was bad but the lock actuator is fine for this reason I"ll be maintaining it just in case also I was able to usage a sedan latch just in situation anyone runs into the very same problem
Yeah it"s normally attached come the latch but I threw the latch away, ~ above the very first 2 pics you can see the 2 holes whereby the screws attach the latch come the actuator, in the last one you deserve to see the plug for the power locks
