Drivers door wont open from inside or outside on my 2010 ford fusion. Any ideas how to get it open so i can fix it


Somehow you will have to get inside the door panel. Either the door lock is engaged and not un-locking. Electric locks? Could be the inside door release handle had dis-connected somewhere in the system due to a broken plastic retainer clip. Not easy but just take your time to not break the trim on the door, remove screws wherever they are. Look on Google for a driver's door trim panel removal steps. I'm not sure if the panel is attached with push-pins or just lift up on it after the screws are out.

Driver side door jammed shut


Not to my knowledge. The mechanism you talk about is the wiring inside the door if it has electric locks. The only way is to remove the top of the door panel to access the door latch mechanism then slide it away from the latch. If that don't work let me know

The driver's door won't open as the lock has broken. How can I get to the lock without cutting through the door?


It's very difficult, sometimes you can use a slim jim to unlock the door but if not then you have to remove all the screws that you can see and basically rip the panel off

I need to change the lock in my drivers side door


first with the L/F window lowered, remove the door trim. Before disconnecting window switch, raise the window all the way up . Now, look inside the door to where the lock cylinder is. You need to unclip the attached linkage to the lock cylinder. Remove "C" clip, ( careful you don't damage outer door panel ) securing cylinder to door and remove lock.
