HELP rear door wont open

Sold my 99 ex-cab to my kid and now the passenger rear door will not release at the bottom. Anyone run into this before? Top will release but not the bottom latch.

you might be able to use a thin flat head screwdriver to pop the lower lock open. i have done it that way before on other trucks from the inside

Brian,
Did you ever solve your door latch problem. Am having same issue. Even took pliers to exposed cable in handle to pull a little harder. I can feel the pull and even feels like a release but bottom latch still does not release.
