It seems like the mechanism inside the door is broken. Does anyone have any suggestions on getting this fixed?

thanks

You're going to get to have fun.

You'll be removing the door panel from INSIDE the car with the door closed.  You may find it easier to remove the seats first, then work on the panel.  That will allow you access to the lock mechanism inside to repair or remove it.

I guess I would think that you could use a lock out tool such as a slim jim to get the door unlocked. At least then you won't have to work on the door while it's closed. Good luck with it.

If the mechanism is jammed/frozen, no slimjim will solve it Wink

If your car is driveable, take it to about any lock shop (call first) and see if they can open it with the ole reliable slim jiim. It's worth a try.  If they can get it unlocked, then just drive home and take it apart there.  If the're unable to unlock, then they may not even charge you for trying. But then, you have to go through the seat removal  routine as already mentioned.   Good luck.   J.R.

When you operate the lock knob do you feel any click?
I would try this if the mechanism is sticking, remove the lock knob and use lots of spray lube  into the lock knob hole while trying to soak the door latch and key cylinder areas. Try to move the lock knob rod up and down and the key many times to see if it will free it up?
Maybe a long shot but it's worth a try.

 I just had a firebird in my shop with the same problem. If you give me your e-mail or phone number. I can call you if you're in the usa.  It's easier to talk you through it. It's not hard at all and you can do it with the window down and door panel on.

Just do what I did with my Toyota station wagon. Take a splitting maul and punch a hole in the door so you can reach the mechanism. hahaha  JUst kidding I did do that to my Toyota ( Shows what I think of import garbage)  I have same problem with my 69 I do not relish the Idea of working from the inside out. Though my door panels arent in pristine shape so i guess im lucky there.
