2002 LX sedan door won't latch / catch

Hi- My driver's door on 2002 LX sedan won't latch when you close the door - won't hook on to the bar. This was intermittent at first but now happens most times. Hilariously, the last time this happened, my wife got it on the second try! Been climbing in passenger side. Locks work just fine. Is there a repair for this without replacing the whole actuator assembly. I looked at a diagram on this forum but looks like maybe I will need to buy the whole assembly - kinda pricey. I did search the forum for this issue but had no luck. Thanx in advance for any help / suggestions!

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Re: 2002 LX sedan door won't latch / catch

That's pretty vague.





Does it line up? Door sagging? Latch jacked? Striker loop not in the right place?

Maybe it's full of dirt....Clean and lube?
Maybe linkages are dragging.. Take panel off and inspect.
Remove latch from the door, if necessary, inspect, see why it won't latch?




Junkyard/you pull for parts?
