I have a 1999 Lexus GS 400 that has the drivers side door stuck shut and I can't figure out how to open it.
When I got the car, the lock actuators were bad on all of the doors. While replacing the drivers side door, I accidentally let the door shut and haven't been able to figure out how to get it open again so there is no handle on the door and no panel on the interior so it looks like .
I am able to access the backside of the lock mechanism that looks like And a different angle coming from the interior From what I can tell, the lever on the bottom right and green tipped cable both release the latch, which I can hear engaging and disengaging when you pull on it and the black cable is the lock.
The black cable is stuck completely and is unable to be moved by hand or with pliers but honestly I'm not sure if its stuck in the locked or unlocked position. I've tried spraying WD-40 on the cable and using a long screw driver to flip the thing the wire connects to but that also does not budge. I've also tried sticking a screw driver in the side to see if I could manually disengage the latch but was unsuccessful.
Does anyone have any advice for how I can get this door open? It'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
