The driver door on my girlfriend's J30 will not open from the inside or outside. The linkages all appear conected inside the door but it just won't open. How can i open it since I can get the door apart? Ideas?

Maybe this will help. I haven't had any door problems, but I found this.

Hey. Had the same problem, when I bought the car. It was a condition of sale from the dealer... But I watched them fix the door, it was the rear driver side. It wouldnt open either way... They tried to "jimmy" it, stick down in the weather stripping by glass, and then they just emptied what seemed like a whole can of this awful smelling lube into it. All said and done, it took them almost 4 hours to fix it. 2 was trying to get the door open. Call the cops and see if they will slim jim it for you, otherwise you can buy one online. Or make your own... Anyway, dont use sooo much lube, my car stunk for a week!
