The rear driver door lock will not open with the switch or by pulling the lock knob manually. It seems the release mechanism in the lock assembly is jammed and it will not move, even with a hard pull on the knob. Since the door won't open, I can't remove the door panel to release and repair the problem. I've tried pulling the seat cushion and various trim pieces but there isn't enough room to disengage the plastic retaining clips on the panel in order to lift the panel up and out. The hinges are accessible and I've looked at unbolting them to try and swing the door out enough, but the door check must be detached from the inside!
I'm out of ideas, except to cut through and destroy the door panel to access the latch mechanism.
Does anyone have any other suggestions??
I have a new lock assembly on hand.
