If you pull the handle toward you , it should release and pop open. Pukenstein@aol.com
My van door is diabolical. Sometimes it opens just by pulling the handle but not always. You may have to use your right hand to open the handle and your left hand to pry the door away from the body a bit. On some models there is a child proof lock so it can't be opened from the inside. Make sure that isn't on if you're trying from the inside. firstname.lastname@example.org

With the fuel door open the sliding door should not operate, this is so you dont slam the sliding door into the fuel door when it is open, not really sure of the question here.
open it up and back into a tree this worked for me
== == Pull on the inside door handle and it will release it so you can reset the mechanism with your fingers. This solution also worked on a Chevy Astro van 1990.
What kind of sliding door?,,,,, Vehicle? House? Bank Vault?
I call AAA Roadside Assistance. Best bargain in the country for auto owners.
in my 88 astro van I had to completely break out the back handle to first get the door open then I was able to remove interior door cover to do thr replacement. in my 99 asto van I was able to remove the interior cover to open the door then replace the handle.
how do I remove rear speaker in rear door 94 astro van rear door will not open
If your dog can open the sliding door, you can use a broom handle to keep the door shut by wedging it so that the door will not slide. This will allow a child to open the door and block the dog from opening the door. You could also keep the door locked and teach the child how to unlock the door.
you need to remove the inner door panel because there is most likely a rod that has come out of place. look for it too be hanging loose some where close to the latch or the outter handle the rod should reatach to the door handle assembly some what easilly
Open the door.
you do the puzzle
the trick is in the name really, you slide it. ???
A disconnected door handle linkage can cause your sliding doors not to open. The locking mechanism may not be fully disengaging, of which will cause your door not to open.
i have this same problem in my van so we figured out that you have to act like your going to open the door from the outside and then put up on the lock from the inside then it should open The door will not unlock from either side while closed. l think i mupst start by removing door panel but then what ?
You can access the mechanism to lower the spare tire from under the van.
if you have a rear sliding window use a table knife to jimmy the catch and if you're to big insert a kid
Linkage is out of adjustment or bent. Release handle broken or bent.
The sliding doors have brass contacts on the front of them. They need cleaned with emery cloth or steel wool occasionally and then lubricated with dielectric grease to prevent them from corroding quickly.
you have to finish the puzzle then click on the door
door catches on a latch partly open how can it be repaired
Open the wall and build a pocket. Try an encyclopedia!!!!!
IF you are looking to open the doors all the way. on the inside door frame you will find a guide and a spring that attaches to the door and the frame the flat steal guide set in a pin on the door frame lift it and it should pop off the pin this enables the door to swing all the way open.
