Default Rear door won't open

Well, it'* nice outside so time to fix all the things that broke over the winter.

The rear door on my passenger side won't open from inside or out> Has anyone had this happen and might be able to help me out.

Also I read the article in technoinfo on removing door panels, can this be done with the dooe closed?

thanks

I had it happen on a completely different, albeit still GM, car once. What happened was it lost a clip from the end of the rod that went between the handle(*) and the actual door latch. Hard to see and get at, but I only lost about a pint of blood getting in there and reconnecting it.

Unfortunately, I can't answer your question about the door panel

Not too sure... I guess someone else will have to answer... I have never had to pull a rear panel for any reason..
here it is for the rear

and the rear seat will have to come out. you will have to pull up where the rear seat meets the back part, and then pull towards the back of the car to get it out
