Do I remove the seat, door panel etc. Or is there a trick to get it open! The passenger side opens from the inside only, right rear opens as normal. Thank you, Marc.

Yeah...but can you get the door panel off without opening the door? Can you roll the window down and poke a coat hanger down in there and grab/push something that's stuck? Spray penetrating oil down in there while your at it?

Bob

PS...I'm sure you already know this...but I have forgotten about it in the past. The doors lock by pushing the inside handle forward. Maybe that's the mechanism that's stuck/broken/needs lube.
