Question about 2000 Nissan Xterra
Check to see if your latch is open unlock door put a screwdriver in the latch and open door with out side handel latsh will release

Had same problem on my 2000 Xterra last year. I found that the latch was not opening the whole way. Easy, free fix:
- remove first aid kit and pull ******** inside of rear door.
- use screwdriver top pry off plastic door panel (plastic push snaps will pop free as you pry).
- look inside door and lube/grease parts that move when you unlock door.
- you will notice the parts regain their full movement with some fresh lube.
- snap door panel back in place (wrap elec tape around plastic snaps if you need to make them fit tighter since they are a little weaker after being removed)
- good luck! you are now an expert!

yes. you should remove the inside door panel.
to do this, remove all the screws you can see. One in the door handle, one by the mirror, then remove window crank/buttons
the take a flathead screwdriver and CAREFULLY pry the panel off. it is best to pry where the plastic pins are holding the panel on.
reverse procedure to reinstall.

There is a small clip that holds the outside door handle arm (inside the door) to the latching assembly, so the door panel has to be removed to reattach it. Sometimes the little clip is still attached to the handle arm, sometimes they are in the bottom of the door & sometimes you can't find them at all... Rick

take off inside door panel and check the linkage on the lock may be broken

Testimonial: "Thanks for that ... I'll give it a go. Cheers."
On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can disconnect the linkage connecting to the outer handle and remove the bolts securing the outer handle on
