Typically in order to remove the actual handle from the door, you must first remove the door panel. When removing the panel, at first do not disconnect your window switches, as you will need to roll up the window in order to accsess the door latch. Once the window is up and all of the door panel compnents are removed, you will likely see a plastic cover of some sort that seperates the door panel from the metal part of the door. You will also need to remove this. Afterwards there should be room enough to look inside the door and see the door latch from the inside. There should be a couple of screws/ bolts holding the assembly together. There will be a series of rods that connect to the latch. The mechanism the opens the door from the outside connects to these rods with a plastic clip. You will likely need to replace that clip to solve the problem. This is a fairly easy task, however, due to the confined space, it will be time consuming.

using small hook tools and tack pullers shaped like mini wonder bars, you can remove the door panel. once removed, you can fish around on the bottom middle of the door and pull the cable to unlatch the door.

this is the door open light indicator on your instrument panel correct? it thinks the door is open. do interior courtesy lights work? i.e. turn on off when opening doors? check for "normally open" circuit faults in the door switches
