Hi, I tried to open my rear off side door when the car was frozen up a couple of weeks ago and I dont know if a cable has come adrift or if there is something broken inside, it functions fine from inside but just wont open from the outside. Just wondered if this is an easy job to do and if the inside of the door has to come out or not. Any suggestions would be apreciated. Thanks.

You will have to take the door card off and have a look at the handle mechanism from the inside, sounds if the handle when pulled is not lifting the catch to release the door, just quickly check that the anti child lock has not been disturbed. I know when they are fully engaged you cannot open the door from the inside - I recall that once a friend of mine had a door which would open intermittantly from the inside - upon further investigation he found that he the child lock had moved half way and thus was not fully engaged. Saved him pullin the door apart!
