There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.
Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.
Hope this is helpful!!

I have exactly the same problem with a 2002 X5. The passenger door handle has no resistance on it from either inside or outside and as such I cannot open the door. I am now wondering how to get the trim off to see what is bust inside. Anyone got any ideas??

First off, you'll need to be able to remove the door panel. there are plastic clips (Push in body clips) as well as a couple of screws that hold the panel on. If you do not have power windows, you'll need a tool available from most any parts store to remove the window crank handle. You can get a window crank handle off with a couple of standard screwdrivers (There is a small metal clip that locks the handle on) but this normally results in damage to the panel. When the panel swings freely away from the bottom of the door, gently slide it directly up to remove it.
Once there, you should be able to clearly see the handle assembly, look for a metal rod about 1/4 inch in diameter that is supposed to be attached to the handle assembly via a little plastic clip. if either the clip or the handle assembly is broken, the rod will disconnect and you will be yanking on a handle attached to essentially nothing.
Door rod clips are available through most auto parts stores for $4-5, handle assembly's you can sometimes get through a wrecking yard, or order from the parts store.
Once you have the panel removed
