Drivers door stuck

Post by UNSAFE »

Morning All

Need some help, please. My driver's door will not open, I have had the door card off and it feels like it is stuck in lock mode. The key will not unlock it and when I try to manually push the lock lever inside the door it is not switching. Is there another way of getting it in the unlock position or do I need to drill the screws out from the back?

Dont know, but is it excess pressure on latch?   Carefully apply heavy pressure against outside of door (around handle) to see if it allows lock to operate.   I have to push against my door in order to alow the trigger to work easily - otherwise it feels overly stressed
