    I can see the two rods. I can't figure out how to use the handle rod to open the door. You can't just pull up on it to open it. It seems like a latch needs to be pushed down, then up. Any additional information would be helpful. Thanks!

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

My grand prix gt door will open from the inside but not the outside


It sounds as thought the rod from the outer handle to the latch inside the door has either broken or come off. remove the door panel and inspect the rod assy.

get in the car anyway possible, you probrally cant open the door from the inside either. Your gonna have to reef the door panel off and reach inside towards the post where the door latches to, and play with it and unlock it by hand. what it is is the spring loaded locking part in the assembly rust out and wears out so that the door wont unlock. I have the same problem with my car i disconnected the power locks in my car cause when people want to roll the window down they accidentally push the lock button. then im stuck entering and exiting out of the passenger door untill i play with it and unlock it. so me and you are gonna have to replace the latch assembly from inside the door.
