Default Rear Door Latch Problem

The drivers side rear door on my 02' SL has been a little stiff to open so I went to look at the latch today and see if I could find the problem - unfortunately I created a new one.

I tripped the cam inside the door portion of the lock and now I can't reset it, as if the door was stuck shut to the car. I need to pull toward the interior with the door handle pulled up correct?

Yeah, stick a screwdriver shank into the latch to "emulate" the striker. Push inboard on it (same as outboard force opening the door) while pulling the inner or outer handle. Latch should release.

Hey Nitroracer,

Any luck with that door stiffness in the door handle? Curious thing, my rear driver's side one suddenly got stiff within a matter of a week or so too. When you pull the door handle to open the door, it doesn't spring back into place. I'm wondering if it's simply corrosion.

What did you do to solve the problem? I'm fishing around for a few answers before trying to take the door apart.

Thanks,

Sam
