My drivers side door is stuck closed. All of the other doors work fine, but this one will not budge. I cannot tell if the lock mechanism is working on it or not. Is there a way to remove the door panel if the door is closed? I had an auto body guy look at it and he was unable to get the door open either.

Please help!

Here are some things you might try. I have read about this issue on other forums but have no first hand experience with this issue.
1) Have a helper pull from the outside door handle while you push from inside.
2) Removing the driver’s seat might provide sufficient space to remove the panel.

Based on my experience taking the door panel off (when the door is open) you should be able to remove the window switch panel and interior latch even with the door closed. If you can get those off you might be able to feel in there for a disconnected rod. Or if you have a borescope you might be able to see what is wrong inside the door.
