The driver's door will not open.
Hi there. Chances are the latch assembly is either faulty or the lever linkage has become detached. The door panel will need to be very carefully removed from the inside and the latch and linkage assessed. If the latch is at fault, it may need to be carefully forced open. Sometimes you may be able to lubricate the latch with a penetrating oil, dry graphite, or white lithium grease to get it working to open. Once open, it would be wise to replace the latch with a new replacement.
