You will need to first remove the seat in front of the door so you can gain access to the panel. Then inspect the panel for retainers screws if there are any. There should be one or two in the armrest and one behind the filler panel on the door opener handle.Look for little plugs that are the same color as the panel, pick these out and remove the screw behind them.Then it should be a matter of creative tugging to get the panel off the door. If you are lucky you will not damage the panel removing. Just take your time and try to not use excessive force to remove anything. This is a matter of finesse rather than force.

Cannot unlock drivers door with either exterior key or power door locks. It will unlock only by pulling interior door handle to open the door.


Sounds as tho your lock linkages have came loose from the door lock mechanism. The door panel will have to be removed to check and repair the problem.

Door locked shut


Many interior panels have additional screws running along the bottom and sides of the panel. They are normally visible and easily accessible when the door is wide open. Compare this first with the right side door of your vehicle.

The key area to look for is any screw that holds the side of the panel. When you remove this (exhausting all patience and guile :-D), you can force off the interior panel rail along the window. The small gap can afford you or an automotive locksmith access to the locking mechanism and open the door.

Hope this helps.
