Re: Rear Door Won't Open
Removing the inner panel wasn't too bad, just removed the seat bottom so I could gain access to the lower edge of the panel.
Now the bad news....it appears the mechanism itself is broken. The lock rod, inner door handle rod, and exterior handle rods are all attached, but don't really catch on anything when actuated (the inner handle rod does pull down a lever with a spring on it, but it' doesn't appear to attached to anything).
I'm going to cut some of the inner metal away so I can get a little closer to the mechanism. I'm assuming I'll need to destroy the mechanism (if I can) to get it to let go of the latching anchor. Anyone else have to go thru this???
