In my case the latch mechanism was frozen. The best bet for that is to allow it to be heated; hair dryer or something then put WD40 or something on it until i get a new one

pull the outside handle and unlatch the latching assembly by hand by insertins a screwdriver where the striker would normally be if the door were closed - and pry out.
You can adjust the striker by loosening the bolts, and moving it in toward the cabin.
If the door itself is droopy, adjustments are made by the hinge by loosening the bolts and lifting up or down.
Multiple attempts will be necessary to get it just right.
Dont get frustrated if it doesnt fit properly in the 1st or second attempt.

I think your cable came loose from the latch. try to see it through the grill, maybe you can get to it with a long flat tip screwdriver

Take the handle off the third door with the two screws and look up in there with a light and see if the arms are off or just whats going on.. Holler if you need more. Jerry
