Front doors wont open from the inside on 2006 Ford Fusion

My front doors wont open from the inside....i initially thought a spring had broken because the door handle on the inside felt like there was something missing..i could still open the door by using the lock portion of the handle but now that wont work and the front passanger door is having the same issue... tough getting out of the car this morning ;)im wondering if it could be an electrical problem.. help

The inner door latch has a plastic piece that breaks on this model. The door panel has to be removed and it is a tricky fix if you do not have much experience.
