If you,ve managed to gain access to the lock mechanism the only thing you can do is to try to dismantle it from inside the door. You may have to destroy it to get it apart but you can then move the latch to open the door. Then remove rest of lock mechanism and replace. You should be able to pick one up from a car breaker for approx £10

94 civic sedan rear passenger door wont open inside or outside


This is a common fail on Honda civics, as a small tab breaks off of the door handle assembly inside the door. The door handle assembly needs to be replaced, and the part is about $75 . Often you need to remove the rear lower seat cushion to get the door panel off.

1999 Volkswagen Passat inside inner door panel


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

Fuel tank door release, 2004 Honda Civic


The release cable is sticking or broken. To release the fuel door, open the trunk and pull off the fabric liner on the left side of the trunk. Behind this liner is the fuel door release cable; this cable leads to the fuel door and attaches with a twist-lock connector. It is cylindrical with two tabs. Twist the connector clockwise about 90 degrees and it should pull out, releasing the door.

Just remember, the fuel door will not stay closed until you put the connector back in.

Door cylinder


hey
The lock cylinder is held in by the chrome on the outside in the cylinder where the key goes in to turn it. from the inside if the door - the outer piece of the chrome (the ring) has a couple of 'fingers' that help hold it on - push it off from the inside so you can reuse it. you should be able to push the cylinder out from the door now.
