SOURCE: door not locked but handle broke off, car is

You could always break a window! You could try and wedge one of the windows open enough to stick a coat hanger or something in to try and unlock the passenger side. Good luck

SOURCE: Installing exterior driver side and passaner side door handles

I found this on another page, hope it helps:)

Remove the plastic cover behind the door handle assembly by removing one black 14mm nut from just above the door handle, and 1 screw (usually phillips) from the bottom of the plastic cover.
Remove linkages from lock cylinder and door handle assembly. Use a small flathead screwdriver to slide retaining clips forward, and linkages will come free.
Remove one black 14mm nut from the very top of the door handle assembly.
Remove one phillips screw drom the bottom of the door handle assembly.
Door handle assembly should now come free by pulling out slightly at the top, and pulling upwards.
Transfer lock cylinder and key minder light (if applicable) to new door handle assembly. Lock cylinder is retained by a single TORX bolt.
Reinstall in reverse.
TIP: If you lose or damage any of those black plastic coated nuts, order new ones. They are GM p/n 10067214 and should be around $0.58/each. There are two on each door.

The rear hatch latch broke inside the door, the hatch is closed, how can I get the hatch open to fix the hatch?


Drill through the trim on the left side of the rear handle exactly in the center (same place the key lock is only on the drivers side) Use a quarter inch bit. If you get it right, you can remove the handle assembly and get to the rods that work the lock mechanism. If you get it right, you can re-use the handle assembly by using a counter-sink and using a tulip screw with a nut on the inside to put it back on. The side near the lock slides under the door skin and has nothing holding it on. Otherwise, your other option is to carefully cut an access hole in the inner panel and make a cover or replace it with one from a scrapyard (good place to get a latch assembly as well!)
Good Luck

How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle


You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.
