The possible break-in was unsucessful. Door latch handle makes no sound and no action inside and outside. Sorry, I wasn't expecting a reply so quick and I thought I would be notified if one came. Someone suggested that the unskilled use of a slim-jim can cause the door open thing to fail.

THIS THAN I CAN.

Sorry , I didn't see this 'til I'm sure it's to late. If the problem still hasn't been resolved (hopefully without a broken door panel) I'll check back and respond this time. Hi Bruce.
OK. I'll check again. Thanks. I was going to take it somewhere soon and brace for the sticker shock.

I'm still hoping for help on Oct.6.12 and will look again.
