Door latch won't open
Can't open the door. All the linkage is attached but door latch will not release. How can
you open the door
I don't think slim jims work anymore. Can you remove the door panel with the door shut?
No we can't get the door panel off
Something inside the door must have let loose or your latch mechanism has broken. Lift the door handle on the outside while pushing with your knee against the door and pull upwards. If that doesn't work, you have two choices. Either cut the door panel off with a thin grinder wheel to access the linkage, or you will have to do what they have done in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RF4cwutEE7Q It depends if you have a linkage problem or a failed latch mechanism. If you do the fix in the video, you will at least save the door panel and the door will still open. Either way, your in for some real fun. Good luck!
