If I take off that door panel will it give me access to the lock? Maybe one of the rod's broke or something?
Yes, you can gain access to the door opening mechanism through the inner panel. But I suspect the previous owner didn't do that every time he needed to open the door. I still suspect the latch / catch is binding.
Maybe it needs to be lifted up on while you pull the latch.
Man, this stuff drives me nuts...LOL...I'm sure you are goin' crazy too.
