Yeah, it's called slimjack. Then take door trim off and get to the lock actuators.

thanks

Friend thought it best to bring her car to the shop,,,,,so far cost $85 to take door panel off. Several hours later was told it would cost her another $136 to replace a part and it would be readyon Wednesday. I have no clue about the part,,,,,,,,and thanks very much for your reply.

that's exactly why this is DIY forum. takes on average 10 minutes to take door trim off and another 10 to figure what's broken.

Lovethis forum

Agree with you! Sound advice from this forum and I have saved much $ by using this forum!! My friend could have and should followed your instructions and she, too, could have done it herself, instead she is now out of pocket and will not get her back until Wednesday. Thanks again!!!
