I think so. Backtrack to the thread "RH rear door...will it ever open << + pic"; that'* probably the one you're thinking of.

Unfortunately the photo I wanted to see, a close-up of the latch, is no longer in that thread, but maybe the other details will help anyway.

Sounds like you're getting good at removing the rear door panels now.

Remove the panel from the other side. Get a helper to open the working door while you very closely look at the lock mechanism. Watch which parts slide & click.

Now look in the non-functioning door. Are you able to notice any difference in activity. If you haven't already, generously spray WD40 inside the latch assembly from every possible angle. Anything starting to move?

If not, have your helper push inward firmly from outside the door around the latch location then try opening. Notice any difference in action?
