I have a 94 which had both outside door handled broken when I purchased it. I was able to open the drivers side from inside and remove panel and replace the "cheep" plastic conector to handle and problem solved. But the other side will not open with inside handle. I pulled pryed forced the panel up and was able to reach inside to push arm on the latch but this will not open the door , it moves but door will not open. Any ideas ? I was going to remove hinges but with the lip on the door post I did not think this would work plus there are wires for lock and windows to worry about. Again any ideas?

when i got mine i had the same problem, the lock had been seazed as well. can you unlock it? if not, grab some big ass plyers ( i used channel locks) or vise grips, grab onto the lock (unscrew the plastic peace off first, or that'll break,,,,), and pull like theres no tomorrow.....worked for me...
