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

2005 envoy drivers door wont open from inside or outside

Linda, The door latch linkage is probably damaged or fallen off inside the door. Pop into a good body shop and have them check the door lock/latch mechanism for you. The body shop rates tend to be more reasonable then dealership for this type of repair. Links below are just to give you an idea of what may be involved in repair.

Drivers door won't open from either side

Need to remove inner door panel and reconnect the open door latch mechanism. Easiest way to go is examine the good other door for operation and then compare with the door that is not working.

The drivers door lock on my 1994 Mitsubishi magna is jammed . it will lock but not unlock

Door locks tend to be a problem as cars age especially in very dusty or damp conditions. Mechanisms need periodic maintenance to keep them in good order but manufacturers provide no facility to lubricate the door catches, locks or the linkages that are hidden away inside doors and consequently even the well-designed examples eventually give trouble and there are many that aren't particularly well designed.

Key mechanisms can be lubricated but rarely are. Linkages that rely on silly plastic bearings and clips soon cause problems when moisture attacks the metal parts or dust makes the action stiff.

The only cure is to remove the interior door panel and examine the mechanism. If the door won't open the task is difficult and often begins with seat removal. Once the panel is removed and the moisture membrane is carefully peeled away so it can be reused examination can begin.

Working inside a door takes a good deal of patience and a strong inspection light to provide sufficient illumination. It is a task better suited to indoors or if outside, done at dusk or with a heavily overcast sky so strong shadows are avoided.

Apart from mechanical problems there is the possibility of electrical trouble caused by corroded connections, wires with internal breaks and worn out switchgear.

Why won't the door(s) unlock on my 1975 Chevelle Malibu Classic?

Does the passenger door unlock with the key? If it is OK, then the lock mechanism or the linkage has a problem. You will probably need to remove the interior door panel and examine it from that angle.

How do I take the inside of the door off to check window mechanism on a 1997 ford Explorer?

Those door panels have push pins in them which means some effort is involved in removal. Going to need a drill and a pop rivet gun to complete the repair. If you are replacing the lock actuator.
