Sounds like the release rod came off of either the main latch or the inside release handle. My guess would be the latch since I don't see many problems with the inner handles. To check you have to remove the door panel. Follow the rod to the latch area. There should be a plastic type of clip that the rod came off of in the general area of the end of the rod. The rod may just push back into place.

There are plastic clips that hold the door panel inplace .. First look for any hidden screws near the door handle . there might be a little plastic cover that you need to remove with a small screw driver to find the screws.. look under the handle also to see if there are any hidden screws . next take a flat blade screw driver and start at the bottom corner and try gently prying the door panel off . try to stay close to the plastic clips not to damage them by prying real hard .. once you have snapped them loose all the way around .. lift up on the door panel to remove it from around the window lip and out it should come.. holler if you have any problems.. usually The mirrors on the chevys are up above the panel and there is a triangle plastic cover over it on the inside .. it will pry off also gently and there are 3 nuts there that need to be removed .. use caution these fall behind the door panel ... holler if you need more.

Hello Nufo :
I like to start by having a large piece of cardboard labeled for the door panel that i am removing . I use the cardboard to put all of the screws that are removed for easy reassembly .
You will need basic tolols like a phillips head screwdriver and blade screwdriver . If the are magnetic that would be a plus . you will also need special tools like a " Door Panel Trim removal tool /set " Or a " Trim Removal tool Set " . Or Panel clip removal Pliers
You will jave to remove the screws holding the armrest and power window switch(s) . You will also have to remove the screws holding the chrome like plastic of the interior door opener ( it looks a little square )
Also remove the screw on - door button/ usually " chrome looking " that goes up and down when you pull the door opener .
Once all of the screws are removed . I would check again and there is usually 1 or 2 more that you didn't see at first .
I would then disconnect the wiring for the window /power door lock switches .
Using the special tools listed above you will use the " Trim removal tool to remove the " clips " which are holding the panel to the door . The clips are located near the outer enge of the door panel every couple of inches .. Follow the instructions that come with the trim removal tools and pull gently .
Chances are 1 or more clips might break bue to their age and possible crystalization .
Lastly with all clips removed , You will have to lift the door panel up. Lift from the bottom up because it has a lip on top that is sitting on a seal like lip . It wouldn't be a bad idea to use a pair of jersy gloves when working on car doors .
Good Luck and I hope that this info has been of help to you .
