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?
