Question about 1998 Toyota 4Runner
I had the same problem with a side door on a Ford Aerostar! You have to remove the inner door panel to gain access to the linkage! It is very difficult, but can be done. It mite get broken taking it off, but it is the best way to get to the linkage to unlock the door. I broke mine in two, but was able to locate one at a salvage yard very inexpensive, so it was worth it. found out the linkage had come unhooked, and a clip was broken. Door works fine now!! Hope this info helps!

SOURCE: Rear Hatch will not open
I have, no HAD the same problem! After a few trips to my friend's dad's shop for a shot of white grease up in there, he told me to simply give it a little kick when squeezing the latch! I laughed at first because really, my mechanic told me to kick my car! Well, we did just that for a while, maybe 2-3 years, and now it just opens. It opens just fine. We do give her latch a shot of WD-40 periodically, more for preventative measures, and that's about it. So, don't worry, just grease her up, give her a little kick in the @$$ and everything will be just fine. Plus while you're in the "kick the car while trying to open it" phase your friends and family will get a laugh! At least mine did!!

you truly need to get into the rear panel and at least get the window by the rubber so not to break it and disassemble the window while in the back of the vehicle by taking the window bolts out or the arm itself then i believe you should know the next step + thanks for clarifying that
