Door won't open from inside or outside!


So I started having some problems with my passenger door were sometimes it wouldn't want to lock. From there it escalated to it not wanting to open up from the inside. Few days ago I tried opening up my passenger door and my door handle broke off! I tried opening the door from the inside but now I'm not able to open it up from the inside either. I bought myself the door handle repair kit but am stuck with no way to really open the door to get it fixed. Any advice would greatly be appreciated!

pull your window seal ( the one on the inside) you can see the mechanism from there. now get a wire hanger and bend it so it's shaped like a L. you should be able to open the door from there.

or you could try to pop off the inner door panel, since youll need it off to do the repair anyway, from the inside and pull the rod that goes to the latch..

You cannot remove door panel with the door closed. However you can remove the door handle bezel and attempt to work with the latches back there.
