Question P38 passenger door won't open!!!!!! Help!!!!

Hi I have a 4.6 HSE 1997 which is up for sale at the moment and is not being used due to no tax. For some unknown reason the passenger front door has decided not to open. The central locking won't open the lock and the door cannot be opened from either inside or out! Does anyone know how I go about taking off the inside door panel when the door is shut to access the internals in order to get the door open and sort the problem? Please help as I can't sell the car with a knackered door!

Sally

try opening the door with the key if not you will probably need to remove the passenger seat to get the door panel off, but even then it might not come. the other option is to rip it off, fix the door then get a new door panel

now this might sound confusing but stick with it -------

they normally stop working due to them seizing up. so with the window down you can see into the inside of th door between the waist seals, you will see the latch assembly and as you look at it from the top you will see the gold coloured mechanism and pull cable, under the gold part of the inkage there is a white section of linkage(this part is plastic) if you pull on the handle you will see this moving, now this normally stops traveling as far as it should so as you are operating door from both door handles-try one at a time, you will need a long screw driver to push the white linkage down, it can be a little awkward this will then give the travel req to open the door,

if this does not work you will need to break open the top of the latch which takes a bit of butchery with hammer and long chisel,

either way you will need to replace the latch.

try this before wrecking your door casing, i have had to get into about 5-6 cars this way but they normally the drivers door latch
