Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
This occured on both back doors at about the same time. works fine from outside.
I have the same explorer. What happens is those silly plastic pieces on the inside seem to break at the same time because the child locks are on and people are yanking on the handle to get out, which causes them to break. You need to take the door panel off and replace the plasic latch

Check and make sure the child locks are not engaged, it is a little lever near the door latch opening in the door.

it must be dismanteld by specialist. i don't think that you can solve this problem. you will have to change some detail and door will open from outside

SOURCE: Driver's door won't open inside
Hey, You need to remove the panel otherwise u can't reattach the metal sticks that move the locks, but i think it's hard to remove it in a closed posision when u don't brake it

It sounds like the connecting rod popped out of its plastic connector. Pull the door panel off and check both ends of the rod. It must be unhooked at one end or the other.
