Rear Door jammed

ok so my rear driver side door has been jammed since i got it, and i jsut got a chiltons and it doesnt even have rear door diagrams in it...

does anyone know if theres a why to get behind the door pannel w/o taking it off, cuz i cant sicne the plastic peice wraps around the door latch on top...

anyone know what might be some causes? ive been oiling the bottom latch becasue its the one thats sticking and no luck....

any other way to access the lower latch?... is there a plate behind the pannel....



sorry for rambling, im jsut adding questions that pop into my head.....

On my 03, there is a cable running from the handle to both
the top and bottom latches. I guess you could just pry off
the bottom half of the door panel (since the top is not able
to come off) reach your hand inside (if you have enough
room) and pull the cable by hand. I'm not sure if this will
work, but its worth a shot.

well we got the pannel sort of off, still attached becuase it wraps around the top latch but weve firgured out that its rusted shut...

and when it seemed as if i was gunna have the door open in no time, we found out that the actual clamp part is completely incased in metal so thers no way to use a screw driver and manually get it open...

anyone know of any rust remover that works really really well cuz ive dumped about 2 cans of wd40 and a bunch of household oil on it and no dice...

PB Blaster is the shiznit. It will seep into anything, and is attracted to rust.

I wish my rear doors would get stuck, that would at least mean that I HAVE rear doors...
