    My door is stuck shut and can’t open it from the outside nor the inside of the truck. It’s stuck like the latch is open but is stuck shut if that makes any sense. It also won’t lock anymore like it’s caught up somewhere. Was wondering if anyone else had that problem.

    Rod inside door probably came off, fun time is to try and reach down by the window and open the door, coat hanger or something similar, then take off door panel & reattach.

    @pushbroom I’ve had the seatbelt get closed in the door and jam it. Had to put my shoulder into it to open.

    The rod probably came off the latch, as they get worn and/or the plastic piece that holds the rod in place broke causing the rod to fall out. The best bet is to try and go down from the top of the door through the window channel.

    Hinges can sag as well sometimes requiring the door to be lifter slightly to get it to unlatch.
