[DML] Re: stuck drivers door

More likely the door was slammed because it is out-of-adjustment. That
bends the linkage inside the door eventually causing it to not be able
to fully release either or both of the latches. The "fix" is to remove
the interior trim while the door is shut (not easy) reaching in and
pulling on the links to unlock and then release the latches. Both
latches MUST be in the "second locking position" before trying to lock
the door. If you force the door to lock you WILL jam the door. Once
you get the door open you have to adjust the latching pins and go
through the whole adjustment procedure as per the Workshop Manual. Be
careful of all of the sharp edges inside the door, it will cut you up!
