ps door will not open, out of ideas
well, i have read many helpful forums to get me where im at but have run out of answers, please help if able.

04 x5, the door would only open from inside latch ,lock was inop while all other doors worked perfect, then it would not open at all, so i have the panel and everything off with door in shut position.

i still cannot find a way to open it, i pull on both handles using the inner cords and everything seems to be moving properly with the handles but will not release the door

My 02 has needed the exterior door handle. Not the painted part but what that attaches to. I've replaced driver and passenger sides.

Item #18 in diagram below is the backside of the interior handle...#5 is the bowden cable that is attached to the handle on one end and the actuator (#1) on the other end. Item #4 is the operating rod.

So when you try to manually move the bowden does not move the operating rod upward? Have you tried disconnecting the electrical connector to the actuator and reconnecting it...or even replacing the actuator in case it's dead?
