I'd like to try to repair it myself but how am I suppose to take the door panel off if I can't open the door? The lock is clicking off and on, I can see the manual lock going up and down. The window rolls up and down fine. Both handles, inside and out move freely, they're just not engaging - they move back and forth sloppyly, ya know. I see a few old unanswered questions on this website, I sure hope someone's manning it. Some date as far back as 2013. I couldn't find any self help videos on YouTube - can someone please give me advise. Thank you - Franci - I noticed tags in this question that aren't mine, like

My engine temp was taking along time to warm up so had the thermostat replaced, but still no luck, it will still take ove 30-40 mins of solid driving to reach 1/2 way,then if I happen to put the cabin fans on on hot you can watch the engine thermostat drop to around 1/4, you can feel the heat difference increasing the faster you drive and drop off if I stop, any ideas?? Are these a linked problem or separate?
