Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
Most times after you take it apart you will find that the linkage rod between the handle and the latch mechanism has fallen off, or the latch has rusted.
To get in there, the easiest way is to cut a three or four inch hole about nine inches from the bottom and just to the drivers side of center in the inner panel. Once you do that, you can see inside to pull up on the linkage rod. Inner panels are generally easy to find in local scrapyards and are not expensive. If the rod has fallen out of the clip, I generally squeeze some epoxy putty into the clip around the rod to hold it better.
There is a second way in but it requires some precision drilling.
