Door Actuator Issue

Greetings,
I'm looking for help with a stuck door. The left rear passenger door will not open from the inside or the outside. Door is unlocked. I took the interior panel off and the cable are connected properly to the handles on the interior and exterior. I'm guessing that the actuator is the issue but I can't remove it to replace it because the door wont' open. So now what?

If your button or other says by position the door is unlocked when it clearly isn't then I would be tracing that linkage method (cable or metal rod) down to the latch assembly at back of door to then mess with it in every way possible. Just because you say it's 'unlocked'..............well, the latch assembly irself has final say over that. If unlock is 100% electric then I would be sending power to the latch right at the latch electrical connector. Try whacking the latch a time or two to see if it might unpop loose, common depending on the design for interior latch parts to seize up from lack of grease when it dries up.

The car doesn't have child locks does it? Look at that.

Thank you for responding. Child lock is disengaged. mechanical door lock uses a cable and it appears disengaged as well. I will mess with it in every way possible and just see what happens.

I should point out I'm new to Nissan and have no direct experience on these latches yet but lots of them work similarly. Many now cannot be disassembled at all and you destroy them trying to. On what I work on, Fords, I learned how to get latches apart by drilling and tapping to replace rivets with bolts to get inside them. On those the inside lock is placed in such a way that grabbing the inside door open handle has you load the side of your hand against the lock tab and if not paying attention you both unlock and lock door at the same time, resulting in a seized latch that has to come apart to free it back up or buy a new one (the Ford cure naturally). I fix mine for the work done and maybe $2 in parts vs. $150 for a Ford latch. So, an idea as to what can happen..........................Murphy's Law applies as always.
