The other day something broke inside my rear driver side door so I'm unable to unlock the door and keep it shut. So far I got all 3 screws that are visible on the inside of the door. Not sure where to go from here to take a look behind the panel.
Take your lock knob off, if you don’t have an interior pry bar, you can use a wonder bar. Place it between the interior panel and the door. Find where your plastic clips are and gently pry outward. Once all the clips are popped gently but firmly in push in at the top of the interior panel with one hand while pushing up from the bottom with the other hand. I figure you’ve already slid the arm rest off. Work the panel off of the inside door handle. If you still have a paper vapor barrier thats in good shape, remove it gently as not to tear it. If you do tear it you can tape it. More than likely you’ll find either a rod worked itself free or the clip broke/rusted. At worst your latch may have never been lubed.
