    Anyone have this problem? The drivers side door is seemingly jammed. The
    door handles work OK and all the mechanical levers for the locking mechanism
    and door latch seem to be working but it will not open. I noticed on the
    passenger side that when you open the door latch, the latching mechanism
    seems to just fall open by gravity. I'm not sure I'm explaining this very

    At any rate, I can't get the panel totally off unless I maybe if I pull the
    dash first. I can get at the inside of the door. Well, I can get my hands
    in there anyway. I'm thinking there must be a broken part inside the
    mechanism itself since everything external of that seems to work just like
    the other side (the working side.) Any ideas of how to get this door open
    with totally demolishing the latch/lock? Thanks!

    I just ran into this same problem and although I haven't fixed it yet, I
    found some solutions online. I actually have a PDF on what to do, if you
    want to send me an e-mail, I can forward it to you.
