RE: SPAM-LOW: [DML] Door won't unlock / open. How to fix?



You probably accidentally kinked the release cable when removing it from the
old handle. This happens when you try to remove the cable from the handle
without first releasing the other end from the bell-crank lever. This makes
it easier to release the cable from the handle without kinking it. This is a
very common mistake so don?t feel too bad! The solution is to remove the
handle again and either straighten the cable core or replace the cable
assembly with the other side temporarily disconnected and taking extra care
not to kink it again. It is not an expensive part and so replacement is my
fix of choice. We, and most DMCH venders, usually stock this part (#101422).

I replaced my driver side door handle. I think I pulled the cable 
outward out of the door to hard. Since the handle replacement, the 
door lock won't unlock (via key or the inside button). What's 
happening is that the thing the other end of the cable (inside the 
door) is connected to is not moving all the way to the open position. 
I have to manually move it to the right just a few centimeters with my 
hand (which requires the door panel coming off). How can this be 
fixed? I've tried pulling the cable into the door with plyers to make 
more slack but it didn't work.
