Help!

My driver side door is stuck shut. I can't get either handle to work. My locks have been disabled because I don't believe half doors should have locks but that's besides the point. I need the door open however I can't get my upper halves off and I can take the pins out and can't take the panels off. Please help me I don't want to break my door panel to get it open.

Hmmm.... If there is anyway you can remove the soft upper? You'd need to get the door skin off I'd think to get to the locking mechanism.

I know. I need to get the door open so I can get the upper off so I can get the pins out and take the panel off to fix the internals. I said that in my original post.

Yea I know.. What I'm saying is find a way to get the upper out.. Remove the top then remove the door surround and try and pry the upper outwards then up and out of the door.

Door Latch

At times my passenger door will not operate after locking. How I get it to release is by fast flipping the inside door release while working the lock rocker. Always opens or releases latch when doing this.

I got it open now but trying to figure out how to fix it is a bitch. Something wrong with the catch.

Door is fixed. One of the lifting parts was bent and getting stuck. I was able to move the part it was stuck on and bend it back to normal position and doors work okay now.
