To replace the door latch on a 2014 Chevrolet Captiva, begin by ensuring the vehicle is safely parked on a level surface with the parking brake engaged and the engine turned off. You'll need a few tools such as a screwdriver, trim panel removal tool, and the replacement door latch. Referencing the repair manual specific to your Captiva model can also provide detailed instructions and diagrams for clarity.

Start by removing the inner door panel. This usually involves carefully prying off any trim pieces using a trim panel removal tool, unscrewing screws that hold the panel in place, and gently lifting the panel away from the door frame. Once the inner panel is removed, you'll gain access to the door latch assembly.

Next, disconnect the wiring harness connected to the door latch assembly by pressing the release tab and pulling the connector apart. Additionally, disconnect any rods or cables linked to the door latch mechanism. With these components disconnected, use a screwdriver to unbolt the old door latch from the door frame. Keep track of the bolts as there may be multiple securing the latch.

After removing the old door latch, position the new door latch in its place and secure it with the bolts. Ensure proper alignment with the door handle and locking mechanisms. Reconnect the wiring harness and rods to the new latch, then test its functionality before reassembling the inner door panel. Once confirmed, reattach the inner panel by aligning it with the door frame, securing any screws or trim pieces, and testing the door latch again for smooth operation. If you're unsure about any step, consulting the repair manual or seeking assistance from a professional mechanic is advisable for a successful door latch replacement on 2014 Chevrolet Captiva.
