Drivers door is stuck-1990 Accord 2dr LX with power locks

Discussion in 'Accord' started by Bif via, Jun 14, 2006.

  1. I have seen this topic discussed in the past. I am a new member and trying
    to get some old info on this seemingly, inherent problem with this model.
    I went into my local coffee shop and came out trying to get into my car, the
    normal way, through the drivers side door. It seems that the door is locked,
    although it is not. I disassembled the door panel, as best as I could with
    the door closed, but still cannot un-jamb the door, to open it.
    Can someone shed some light on what I can do to open the door? Hopefully
    someone who experienced this will reply and tell me exactly what they did.
    Can anyone tell me what the problem is?
    Thanks for any information anyone can give with this issue!!!

    Sorry, the news may not be good. When this happened on my wife's 91 Accord,
    the garage had to remove the panel (as you say, the best they could), and
    *drill out* the bolts holding the latch. Then it was a simple matter of
    replacing the latch.

    This is, apparently, an unfortunate common problem. Check this out (may be
    of help):

    and this (caution - link may break):

    Good luck,

  3. Thank you very much!!! I don't like the sound of a 6 hour job. I don't have
    that kind of time but sure beats paying$500!
