the linkage inside the door panel broke and i have to roll my window down and open my door from the outside lol...pain in the ass
driver side door handle has broken leaving me to exit out passenger door because all for window motors are also shot
1990 Century. Drivers side door handle broke when purchased. Now window crank broke so if I jam window up can't get out on drivers side. Using this method until winter is over and can repair. Attempted to get out of car recently and the passenger inside handle broke. Put the window back down on driver side so I can exit vehicle. Not much fun during this Midwest winter season.
Interior door handle on driver side no longer opens door. Moves without any resistance but causes no action. Door opens fine with external handle.
inside door handle will not open the door. window will not roll down on driver side so must crawl out passenger side
Inside driver door handle will not open lock. Requires door disassembly and new linkage and door latch.
I bought the car from the previous owner, a 21 year old female, who told me she broke it by jerking it too hard when it was frozen shut.
