Re: door wont open. need help fast.

A child lock is designed to be only operable from the inside handle. The outside handle should still allow the door to be opened and if they haven't fixed that then A.) it is either quite expensive or B they can't fix it and a new door is needed (once again expensive). I would wonder what else is wrong with the vehicle. Such as collision records.

Remove the inside door panel and fix it from the inside

Iīm almost sure that you canīt get the panel of with the door closed, at least not in one piece. You could have a look at the scrapyard what an inner door panel would cost and if not too expensive, you just cut the one which is installed now.
