What to know about the Interior Door Handle:
The car has at least two door handles per door: one on the inside and another on the outside. Due to frequent use, they will eventually break down and could need repair. Sometimes the handle itself is fine, but there is a problem with the door latch assembly that prevents the door from shutting and locking properly.
Facts to Note:
If your interior door handle is damaged, there’s a possibility that your exterior door handle may also be damaged.
Damage to your interior door handle can also mean damage to your door locking system.
How to Fix:
Take away the door panel to gain access.
Take out and change the broken door handle.
Inspect door latch and replace if not working.
Check door for proper operation.
Reinstall door panel.
You should plan an inspection anytime you notice something wrong with your interior door handle. If the door won’t open, if the handle feels loose, or if the handle feels like it’s going to break, get it checked out.
Common symptoms indicating you may need to change the Interior Door Handle:
Door will not open.

Importance of this service:
Your interior door handle is the only safe and reliable way to open your vehicle from the inside. If the handle doesn’t work, you’ll have to exit your vehicle through another door, or by rolling down your window and using the exterior door handle (if it is working).
