Ahh I dont think you need to replace it,, it has a rod inside fastened by clips,, it may have just gotten loose and needs fitting back in.. here are the steps to do so,,

  1. remove the door upholestry (there are hidden screws in the handle and behind the lock,, look for clips hiding them that heeds to be pryed up..
  2. now send the glass all the way up..
  3. look at the door lock,,you will notice a rod running from it to the handle to open it, both inside and outside,, and it will run to the key lock as well.. these rods need to be pulled and pushed to open and close the door ,, each part has a hole that the rod inserts and is fastened by a clip,, ensure that the rods are in place and fasted propperly,, close door and open to ensure u have it propperly..
  4. reassemble..

2000 civic drivers door will not open

Can you roll down the window, disconnect the battery, then unlock the door with the key or from inside and open the door ?
You could have a short in the wiring for the electric lock, or a problem with the latch inside the door.

My 2004 jeep grand cherokee has issues with windows rolling down and the automatic door locks.. Neither will work on any door. The sunroof will roll back however.

Had a similar problem... the wiring harness that goes inside the drivers door had a broken wire, hence no power would go to the door locks or the power windows. Check the area where the harness flexes when the door opens and closes.

Drivers side door wont open from inside, window problems

It is most likely a rod has fallen off inside the door. You may have to use a coat-hanger to read down inside and pull back on door latch to open it up.
Then after it is opened, remove screws on inner door panel, remove window/lock controls, take a big flat-head screwdriver and gently pry next to the plastic tabs holding on door panel. Remove door panel and put window back on track , and replace or reattach door handle rods.
