OK ok take it easy.... you do not NEED to get the door open to take the panel off. If it is a silverado with electric windows ect, start taking out screws ect. , and pop the panel off, your latch mech, may just need lube, I recommend BP POWER BLAST, spray it on, also look for any linkage that may have come off, IF your door has a window crank, you will need a special tool to remove the locking clip.

Only way I could think of would be by wedging the window frame and trying to use a thin steel rod and flashlight to try and pull the opening mechanism in the door. Other than that Sawz-all JOKING pain in the arse May want to see if you can access through door handle...

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.

Cant open door from inside,i pull the handle and wont open,,,99 chevy truck..base model work truck..


This is common in the Chevy's... The inner rods/clips etc get stretched from use and the handles even break inside the door and you can't tell until you remove the door panel. I know of people who have replaced all four as routine maintenance! good luck

07 Chevy Tahoe passenger rear door handle broke


a broken rear door handle takes only a few minutes to replace, whether it's the inside or the outside door handle. However i woudn't suggest you do it yourself if you are not really familiar in the trim panel removal, for you may damage some locking tabs or the finish. we don't need additional costs, right?
