Re: Unreal

I had similar problem with tailgate on my old ZJ. Different car, I know, but issue can be similar.

It manifested itself the same - I could hear lock unlock but I couldn't open it. By accident I noticed that if I press down above the handle while opening it then it would work. The problem was mechanical. I took it to the dealer and they were able to adjust the lock. Problem disappeared but came back several years later and I just lived with it.

My point is that it might be purely a mechanical problem

Dealer love. I've never said that before....I think I made it up because I've never experienced love at a dealership. Lust maybe, some hotties work at Pearson CJD, but surely not love.

Re: Unreal

Sounds like the latch arm has disconnected from the handles. If you pulled the inside panel off I bet you could pull the arm and open the door.
