Extended cab door won't open

I can't figure out the problem with my extended cab door. Driver's side doesn't open with either door handle. Anybody else have this problem?

What do you mean by either handle? Far as I can recall, there is only one?

If you pull the handle and it feels loose and nothing happens, sounds like somethin came loose on the inside and you'll probably have to pull the door apart and take a look.

I think he means the inside handle and the one in the door jam.
one of the cable ends finally wore out. It happened to me. take apart the door Like Lisa said and sometimes if you pull the cable tight then pull the handle, it will open.
The are over $100 from the dealer. comes as a cable/latch assembly.
I still haven't replaced mine, the door rattles a bit, but it opens.

How do you take the door apart?
Do you drill the rivets out of the handle on the door jam?

Let me go look, its been a while...
Ok, take out the two screws that hold the window latch and the top panel will pop off. Remove the two (or is it three? ) screws on the top lip of the lower panel. the rest is held on by clips, just pop off the lower panel and your in.
You can do all of this from the back seat with the rear door closed.

Thank you for the help! I was hoping it was easy like the front door panels.

No prob Its not too bad, paying for the new cable is the worst part.
