Use a spray lubricant like WD-40 on the latching mechanism in the door. Soak the parts good, and continue to open, and close the door working in the lubricant. You will find that your door handle mechanism comes back.

Look to see if your rubber seal is sticking out. Mine does this and sometimes I need to push against the door while lifting the handle to open it.

I have a 2002 Jaguar X-Type that does the same thing. You pull the door handle and nothing...I finally mastered it. In my case, I figured out that it has something to do with the seal, and it gets and it mostly happens when it rains. I kinda lift the handle and push in and pull all in one brief motion.

2002 Jaguar X type does the same thing. You can use a lubricant like wd-40 to help fix it. In the mean time if you lift the handle and simultaneously push the top right of the door (just above the window), it frees up from the hink and you have easy access.

hi the problem your having is going to be that on the inside of the door their is a metal bar that connects from the outer handle to the lock and the same for the inner handle, what you need to do is remove the door panel by taking out all the screws holding it on the door and the pull it off the plastic clips holding it on then once its off check if this bar has fallen off or broke, replace if needed.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
