Passenger Door Actuator locked door shut, door won't open! Mega Problem! Help!
I have a 2009 Versa HB SL model and I went about replacing the passenger door actuator to fix the trunk not opening issue. Got the part from
at $113.xx, part #: 80500-EL01B. The good news is the trunk would open fine, but the passenger door is now permanently
shut! The issue is both cables, interior and exterior handles that release the latch are loose inside the actuator and do nothing (defective part). Only the unlock/lock cable works which does no good. Unfortunately I didn't test before closing the door. I cut the top of the actuator open with a dremel tool and there is a lever which should open the latch (opened old as guide) which I pull and it is really hard and doesn't release the latch.
To get the inside panel off with the door shut was hell, but I got it off. However, how can I break this actuator enough to get to the latch from inside the door panel?
I am having some hard luck here with this issue and 3 days later still can't open the door. Please, someone, advice, suggestions?
