I have an Toyotta Corolla 2002 and sometime ago is not anymore possible to open the passenger door by inside.
Opening the passenger door using the exterior handle is working only the inside handle/latch is not working.
I opened the door and there is a 'metal' rod that go from the inside plastic lath (passenger side) until 'someplace' and makes the door open.
On this car all the system is 'mechanical' I have check the later documentantion and the iron rod was substituted for plastic cables.
My question is:
1- Anyone have clear instructions how to fix that? 2- Any diagrams how to fix the iron rod in a way that does not fall.
PS. I opened all the door, tried to fix the metal rod and when I closed the door bang... it falls apart... (after 4 hours of work)
All the instructions on internet talk about if the latch is broken... My latch is ok... The problem is the metal rod that when the latch lever is pulled opens the door.
