its really simple to open it if you can lower the window stick shims or a wedge to hold it open for you i use to do this by feel but now i have a camera like the S.W.A.T. teams use so with this and along rod about 3 1/2 ft long and about an 1/8"in diameter i can look at the lack inside the door and push down on it and magic the door comes open then you can take the panel off and see what the problem is
