Re: remove inside panel from driver's door
Well look for little trap doors usually under the inside handle and under the arm rest check outside of the trim panel then take off mirror usually just pops or pulls off/ then lift from the bottom out and slowly pull the sides then you can lift the trim up take out the power for windows and out once you get that off their is a vapor barrier take that off and look at the clips and the look to see if handle is attached their is a round retainer that goes around the metal if not look at the lock or latch it may have come off athe point if you have any questions let me know Please rate my response thank you very much

Close/wind up the window. Remove the inside door panel. Be careful with power window switch and door speaker wiring connectors. Disconnect them before pulling the door panel away. Remove any plastic covers that may be glued to the door. Have a look at the door handle from inside the door. You will have some idea as to how to remove it. Usually door handles are secured by screws from the inside. Locate and remove them. Remove linkages to the door handle then pull handle form outside.
I believe that door can be opened. If you can open from inside or outside it must be a latch has come off under door handle...I've seen a cop once take the license plate off a car and stick it between the door jam by the door handle and slide it up and down and the car door came open...Worth a try..And a slim Jim down beside the door handle to catch that latch that's off would be worth a try to
Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.
If it were me , I'd remove the inside door panel and take it from there. It may be that you can pry open the lock mechanism with a screw driver or a similar tool, allowing you to open the door - which obviously you must do. Even that, though, will not solve the cause of your problem. You may wind up at the dealer.
Bring the vehicle into the dealer if you have a sticky gas pedal. This is a TOYOTA PROBLEM.
It easy ! You need a philips and flat screw driver,and a needle nose pliar. Use flat screw driver and pry out the two or three dust covers for the arm rest screws then use philips and remove the screws. Next use the flat screw driver and pry out the black plastic mirror cover from the inside of the door. Pry out the switch with the flat screw driver and disconnect it. On the side of the door panel just above the striker/loch mechanism is this plastic push pull type of a hold in screw. Use flat screw driver to get it to move a little then pull it out with the needle nose. Depending on which door your doing if you have a map folder in the door there are two more screw to remove on the bottom of the door. Now the inside door handle is tricky it comes out in TWO pieces. Use philips and get the only hold down screw you see out.( you may have to pry out a little screw cover first) Now the inside door handle cover is removed by placeing the flat screw driver on the rear of the outside of the cover top and on the outside rear bottom to release the tangs that are holding it onto the panel.Pry it out lightly you may have to place the screw driver over the top of the door release button and pry that way. Don't loose your cool its a pain but it will fall out. Once its removed unhook the panel.
Next lift the plastic cover and remove the door handle hooks and levers . Basically use common sense this is easy stuff. There may be two screws from inside of door panel that keep handle in place . Then work handle loose from outside and inside . reverse for installation.
I dealt with a similar problem a few weeks ago. In this case the lock mechanism had become jammed and the lock knob would not come up resulting in the door not opening form either side. To free up the mechanism get a can of WD40 and with the little tube between the window rubber direct a spray into the general area of the lock (have window up). Do this from both sides of the glass to make sure you get the area. Let it soak in for a while and then jiggle the lock using the key and alternatively lift the knob until it is free.
If this fails you can remove the door liner on the other door and to see exactly the mechanism works. To remove the liner, remove any cover caps which cover the screw heads on the armrest etc, remove the spring clip holding the door handle and then use a flat scraper blade to gently lever off the door lining having the flat blade as close to the press in fittings as possible. You usually need to have the door open to do this.
probably need a new window regulator. ebay. 93 to 98 should fit.
