I cant open the real tailgate door on my 95 odyssey, The locking button goes up and down OK, but when I pull on outside handle, nothing happens. I did just have the rear window,which had broken, replaced, so I wonder if they screwed up the latching mechanism, or if a piece of the broken glass got wedgedin somewhere. Is there a way to release from inside, or to get the panel off? Is there a drawing somewhere of the latching mechanism?
Try shaking the door real hard and work the latch. You may be able to shatter the glass if its the cause of it sticking. Try the key and the fob to actuate it and if you have a trunk switch up front work it also. ... 1995 Honda Odyssey

My drivers door seems to be sagging from the front pivot point of the hinge which is causing the door to not open well. It has gotten so bad that I have to physically lift the door to open. It no longer will open from the inside. The handle on the outside seems to be very soft when lifting it and I have to lift the handle on the outside any physically move the finger arm mechanism up to get the door to close aroung the pin on the frame of the vehicle. Can someone tell me what parts I need?
Sound like what you need, is door hing pins, they go on the hinges, remove hing pine and brass bushing, install new ones, you will need a jack or some thing to hold the door up while you replace the bushing's and pin's. ... 1996 Ford Explorer
