I can see the latch and get to it and i see how the inside handle rod is attahced and works. Please explain exactly what I am trying to manipulate to open the door. Thank you.
Look at lock mech. Make sure it's in unlocked position. Then pull mech door handle is hooked to. If not unlocked door will not open.
