      The inside rear door handle i have found does not open the door but i can open the door using the outside door handle. I have checked the child safety lock and that is not the case. Can someone tell me how i should go about fixing this problem and approximatly how much it will cost?

      The gears in the handle are probably wore out. You'll have to take the door panel off and then remove the handle and replace it. I think you can get them at most auto parts stores just make sure you get the one for the side it's on. Or you can pick one up at a junkyard that's what I did but I was there getting some other parts already.

      It's a fairly common problem but an easy fix.

      I can remember buying those from Amazon.com. Dealership prices are high. But some auto supply stores are even higher. You really have to shop around whenever you buy auto parts.

      Don't get the cheapos on ebay. They don't last. I'd bet the Dorman handles from AZ are okay. I put a little grease in the gears when I replace these or have the door panel off.
