We have a 2013 EX-L that the front passenger door lock stopped responding to the key fob and the unlock button. Still locked/unlocked manually so I assumed it was the actuator. Started to replace the actuator today and have ran into a MAJOR problem. The door got shut with the panel off and now I cannot get the door open.

What’s the next step? Dealership visit?

Thanks for the help in advance!!

You should be able to open it by pulling one of the cables. Check panel to see which cable is pulled by the handle. Might need to hold one pair of pliers against the housing while pulling cable with other pliers.

FIXED. When I removed the door panel I disconnected the inner handle link cables and left the handle attached to the panel. I was able to pop the handle of the panel and reattached it to the door with the links. This allowed me to open the door.
