Passenger Door is stuck shut.

Guys and Girls

did search and tried the remedies in the threads I found

I picked up a 64 c10 at the start of this month and I have been collecting parts for it. I want to start breaking down the front end for the 72 crossmember I have but I cannot get the door to open. I have pulled the door panel and spray WD-40 and pb blaster on the latch inside the door . I've tried prying up on the door ,pulling hard and I can't get it open.

Do you guys have anything other ideas?

Thanks in advance!
Chris

Re: Passenger Door is stuck shut.

I guess the door is not stuck in the locked position. What does the linkage do when moving the inside door handle? How about a big kick with your boot.

Re: Passenger Door is stuck shut.

If both inside and outside handles won't open it, pull up and push down on the door lock many times and snap it to the top on the last one. My son had the same problem recently on the 65 GTO I gave him and a guy on the Pontiac forums told me (him) to do this. It worked!

Re: Passenger Door is stuck shut.

I pulled the seat belts from a mid 60s car at a yard. Needed to get the pass door open to get the outer belt bolt. Had someone push on the door release outside, and I laid on my back on the seat and kicked the door as hard as I could from the inside. Pop, door opened.

My 66 sticks after sitting. I use a plastic wedge from a body trim kit to pry it open.

Glad my trick worked! Wouldn't suggest it for a show car, but sometimes... brute force is the answer.
