    Vendor Deals Arnott Inc. Facebook Google Remember Me? Passenger door won't open from outside. Well as soon as I tick off a job from the to do list I have to add at least one more. Today the passenger door wouldn't open from the outside. Luckily it does open using the open lever from the inside. I'll need to strip off the door card and have a look.

If there is less resistance, then the split pin attaching the L-shaped lever to the handle probably came loose, the L lever is no longer engaging where it should be to release the lock. If there is more resistance, then the L-shaped lever probably slipped off the second lever which releases the lock. Sorry for my shit description of the moving parts inside the door.

    Both would involve you removing and refitting the outside handle; a job made easier once the inside door panel is removed so that you can , from the inside of the door, push the second lever the one releasing the lock , towards the outside in order to engage the L-shaped lever attached to handle now that you replaced the split pin.

    Also, when refitting the L-shaped leaver, if it is not sitting at the correct angle, you may find that you are only able to either lock or only unlock the door with the key; then it is a case of remove, adjust, refit and check. Last edited by ettienne; at Use your words, man. Thanks for the advice, the handle resistance is lower than below, so it sound like the split pin has fallen out. I will report back when I get to the job. I pulled the door handle, it seems to be in good condition and the door opens when I pull on the lever within the door.

    Is there anything missing from inside the door? Could the handle L piece have just got itself unlatched somehow? Is there a special technique to fit the handle back in the door and get the L shaped part back into the correct position?

    Last edited by RaceDiagnostics; at I'll throw in a few suggestions When I changed my door lock didnt remove handle there was nothing else but what you see in your picture- so no there is nothing missing Doubt it would just "slip out" but if there is plenty of slop on the shaft that "L" shape bit slides maybe it could Originally Posted by the lurker View Post.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have another look tonight and try to refit again. Thanks for the help, I checked the L piece, it was held in tight so I refitted the handle today and its all working well.

    Somehow the L piece had just managed to disengage itself. Quote message in reply? In order to be able to post messages on the Mercedes-Benz Forum forums, you must first register.
