    I have been in the middle of replacing my window regulator motor and in the process my drivers door lock assembly has seemed to crap out on me or something. I do not have a handle installed on the inside of the door, only the outside. I can unlock the door manually by key but when I pull the door it doesnt budge. I am charging up my battery and going to try and unlock with my fob. Is there any way to get the door open manually from the inside?


    Thanks!

    You have the interior mechanical cable completely disconnected?

    What all had you done to the latch assembly and the rods connecting to it in the process of getting to the regulator?

    Lol, it was frozen.... I only removed the handle on the inside of the door. I removed the entire panel that holds the motor and handle.
