Question I can't fix jammed door, it just won't open.

I know how to take off the door panel, I know how to carefully disconnect all electrical, I know how to take the door off, hell I even know how to adjust the door so to leave a perfect line from the rear quarter panel to the front fender.

But what I don't know is how to take this $#%$%#@#%$ door off while it's closed...

Someone please help, before I do something drastic like drive a MBZ... EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I had that same problem with my rear passenger side door. I had to break the little plastic pins on the panel and take the weather stripping off to get to the actuator off because water had seeped into it and rusted it out. Sadly the parts yard I go to flattened the car I was pulling from so I've yet to replace it. just take it off like normal, but be 100 times more careful not to ruin your panel or you'll be sorry unless you have some extra wire mesh duct tape and gorilla glue laying around.
