My cable had a little too much slack in it so I crimped a lead split-shot (used for fishing) over the cable just above the factory cable end. It took up the slack and has worked trouble-free for over four months now. == == Had had this problem repeatedly. What happens id the latchpawl usesa screw that works loose which then lets the pawl skip over the release this is easy to tell as there will be no resistance and a clunk heard whenever you try to open the door. You have to drill a hole into the side of the door in tha jam area to reach(5/16") to allow a screwdriver access to tighten. It's the pits to put together if it has fallen out.

first you have to pop off the cover lumps that cover the screws and remove the fabric/wood door panel and there might be a clip that is broken on the door rod that connects to the outside door handle

What do you do if the inside passenger handle will not open the door on a 1998 Honda Civic LX?

My problem was the outside handle wasnt working, and the childlock was put on, and door closed. To open a door I couldn't get open from either side, I unscrewed the handle from the inside. I pulled the rod with my fingers, and it opened, then I put the rod on the one from the inside handle. I'm still figuring out how to take the panel off, or get to where the rod is on the outside handle. I cant reach far enough to put the rod back on the handle for the outside, so any help on that would be nice!~
