1999 Express Rear Door Handle Mechanis

I have a 1999 express and the rear driver side double-door latch stopped working. If you pull on it to open the door there is no resistance and the latch does not operate.

After looking at it I realized that the mechanism that operates the linkage right behind the door handle popped off of the rod and so it will not operate. I can place it back on the rod and it works fine if I hold it on the rod. It appears that a retaining clip or whatever held it on the rod broke off.

Does anyone know if this retaining clip can be replaced? Thanks

Thank author of this post/comment"Chevy Express Back Driver's Side door handle Jam solution"


For those of you who just found your Chevy Express Back Left hand door handle not working here is a solution...this might help.

If you look inside the door and study the handle mechanism you will notice a rod coming down from above and one that should be going up from below (the rod coming up from below will be harder to see because it is hidden behind the metal door, but if you look hard you will find it) when you pull on the handle.

The rod some how dislodged and is no longer working probably due to a clip

popping off.

In my case the lower rod popped off and there are two things you can do to solve the problem. The manual fix is simple. When you open the door on the right, reach into the back of the door on the left and gently pull up on the should hear a click...then you want to pull on the door handle to make the rod coming down open the door for you. The door should open.

The second solution is kinda a jimmy rig.

Place the lower rod back into the plastic fitting which no longer has the clip to hold it there. Take 3 zip ties and try and go around the rod and the plastic mount in such a way that you are pulling the rod into the plastic mount. I did this tonight and it worked well. Don't know how long it will last but the door handle is opening and closing fine.

Good luck,
