The driver side door on my pickup will not open. I took the door panel off and confirmed all the linkages are connected and operate as expected. I took the panel off the other side to observe how it looks when operated. From this I selected a spot to pry with my big screwdriver, this was enough to get the defective latch open. It worked once, anyway. While it was opened I cleaned it out with aerosol brake cleaner and applied some new lube. I was exercising the cleaned, lubed latch with close, open, close, open, close, open, close… no open. Knowing where to pry, I went back in with my screwdriver and now prying in that spot no longer has the door opening like it did the first time. It’s almost like the door is “over-closed” if that’s a possibility. Has anyone had success fixing a similar situation or any advice in getting the door open?
