Hi Buddy:
Check with one of the local towing companies. There's usually someone who is pretty talented with a "slim jim" who may be able to help.
The other way would be to remove the inside panel of the passenger door and study the way the actuator moves to open the door. Then figure out a way to make that happen by sliding a flat tool (that's the slim jim) down beside the glass. You'll be working blind so you have to figure out what you need to do, customize the tool, and then do it with your eyes closed.
It's actually quite fun!
Hope this helps.

My 05 cobalts driver door is stuck shut how do i get it open to fix it?


If you can't open it from inside or out the actuator rod is either broken or out of place, Sometimes the lock sticks. try locking/unlocking to see if it frees up. If not it's going to require removing door panel and reattaching rod.

My heater doesnt work


Sounds like the heater blend door. The actuator may be stuck or broken. The actuator opens and closes to adjust for the heat setting in the car. You might be able to take a coathanger and manually open the door if you can get to the control arm. They are usually hard to get to and pretty expensive. It is located under the dash at the heater core box. Good luck.

My driver side door wont open how do i get it


sounds like the door lach is sticking
use some wd40 spray the lock and let it sit 4 a while
now since you have the inside skin off reach inside the door with 1 hand and try and open the door from the outside and see if the lock bar moves it usualy pushes down i think on a lach
if it goes up and down with no resistance make sure it is contacting the lach if yes make sure the door is unlocked
somtimes the lock is just stuck
after unlock open the door
push down on lock bar attached to lock then pull up on it if that fails to open door
after that all fails unlock door have friend pull handle and then give the door a good kick from inside just remember not the kick the glass
