    Sounds like your clip and rod came off the handle... I had that happen in a 98 one time, I spent an hour getting it aback open messing with the latch mechanism with the door panel off... good luck..

    Yeah, you're in a bit of the chicken/egg situation there.

    Try to pry the top panel back a bit enough to get a slimjim/slimiar inside the door to manually move the rod. Then you can get the door open and re-build ht handel and latch.
