The driver's door latch assembly can break internally, which causes the door to stay closed. The interior and exterior door handles do not work to open the door. Our technicians note that the door panel must be removed while the door is closed (likely damage will occur) and the latch assembly must be drilled in a specific spot for the door to open.

    I Have a 1998 honda accord lx v6 and it runs fine but im constantly climbing over my center console to enter and exit my vehicle and I am over 6' ft tall! I cant deal with this anymore! I have not been able to go where i want because I am HIGHLY embarassed about climbing out on the passenger side and I cannot find anything or anyone online that can show an actually decent video of give simple instructions to fix this problem! HOW DO I FIX THIS ISSUE???? I thought Honda's were reliable and USER/ DRIVER FRIENDLY??? Im starting to seriously doubt that reputation........

    I cannot open the driver's side door from either inside or outside latches. I have taken a look at my latch and found that it is indeed broken internally.

    Cannot open driver side door from interior or exterior. Cannot get to the assembly because door pannel screws are inaccessible when door is closed
