On the inside trim, you can 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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can pull the seal off the door and look at the rods and mechanisms. It sounds like the rod connecting to your lock cylinder may have broken

Get Door To Open With Dead Battery So I can pop the Hood Switch

I imagine the obvious answer is to use a key in the door lock cylinder. The reason you have done this is because there is no door lock cylinder! You only have a fob is my guess, that electronically opens the doors. Dead battery..and the fob no longer works. Don't worry, examine your fob and there should be a way to open it. Carefully open the fob and surprise! There is a key inside of it! Now take that key and there ahould be a key lock cylinder above your rear license plate. You should be able to open your rear hatch. Now somewhere to the drivers side in the rear compartment there should be some sort of pull you can use which will open the drivers door. Hope that helps you out!

It looks as if you may have to go back to the dark-ages and forget the remote key options, pull the door locking fuse, go back to the old manual way, the key in getting into it. Be ready to spend a few bucks to repair the driver's switching, remote module. Find a local auto-electric business.

It is a key system and when the drivers door is unlocked all the doors and rear hatch are supposed to unlock. Sometimes they do not. 1996 subarulegacy/outback

in some markets,if you turn the key quickly only the drivers door will unlock,you have to hold the key over longer to open all the doors.(so the driver can not be attacked by robbers from the passengers side or rear.....ladies handbags are a good source of income...)
