Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
It's starting to look like that problem is a "factory option"!!! The fastest way and likely the easiest is to drill or cut a hole in the inner liner about 6" above and slightly to the right of the lock latch. (big enough to get your hand into).You need to pull up on the vertical rod that goes between the handle and the latch below it. That will get it open.
Most times you will find that either the rod has fallen off or the latch is rusted. (or both) Lots of wd40 or any good lube spray will usually free up the mechanism. best thing to hold the rod in place is to assemble it, check that it works properly and then put a glob of epoxy right into the retaining clip.
The inner liner can either be left that way or if it bothers you to have the hole there, you can usually locate another panel in any scrapyard.
