How do I unlock and open my driver's door without taking the interior panel off?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The power lock on my driver's door failed and I cannot unlock or open the door. Lexus/Toyota dealers tell it will cost $800+ to fix becuase the only way to open the door is to take the iterior panel off from the inside.

did they tell you its because of a door lock actuator? you should still manually be able to open and unlock the door from the inside with a failed actuator because there are still cables attached to the interior handle and lock. but yes, to fix the issue, the door panel must be removed along with a other things after that such as a plastic sheet must be peeled back and then work can be performed.
