sounds like the door handle inside is broke,is made of plastic,you will have to remove door pannel to fix it,you probley need just the door handle ,you can get one out of a junk yard.

the onley screws will be where you open at door handle ,cover behind it,arm rest should have 2 under it acc inside,once they are removed their is 1 or 2 where the arm rest was removedremove them,pull door panell back far enough to reach inside to open door,panell is held on by clips.


Thanks for the info, i can not get to the screws that holds the door panel on when the door is closed. Any suggestions on removing maybe part of the door panel thanks
