You will need to get a manual to help you do this without damaging the door panel fasteners, which are usually ribbed rivet-type plastic pieces. A Haynes manual will give step by step instructions for how to do this. Sounds like the linkage between interior door handle and latch has broken or come loose, not an unusual problem.

You need to take the screws out of the arm rest,, remove the bezel around the door handle and there should be a screw in there, then you will need a clip removal tool or new clips for the door panel. Pop all the clips out and lift up on the door panel to pull it out of the window track. Then your set to go!

1. Remove the window handle by depressing the door panel and removing the retaining clip. 2. Remove the door lock knob. 3. Remove the arm rest. 4. Snap off the trim covers and remove the screws retaining the assist strap, if so equipped. 5. Remove the electrical switch panel, if so equipped. 6. Remove the trim panel by carefully prying out at the trim retainers located around the perimeter of the panel.
