Driver side door will not open on 2006 Volkswagen Passat

I have a 2006 Passat. Driver side door will not open from the outside, but inside is ok. any suggestions?

There is a linkage inside the door that connects the outer door handle to the latch assembly and either it poped off somehow or is broken. The door panel has to be removed to get to this, this is something your local body shop can handle.
