Bad driver side actuator

Just a warning to all, my driver side door would not open from either the outside or the inside. Told my cousin about it and he managed to open the door somehow, he is a car body man. Open and closed the door to test and it was working, two days later it won't open! He managed to remove part of the panel with the door open and continued to hit a latch while pulling the outside handle and nothing! Now I have to be getting in and out through the passenger door, not sexy at all. Therefore word to the wise, if this happens to anyone, change the actuator as soon as you manage to open the door, don't risk it. If anyone of you guys has a tip on how to open the door I would greatly appreciate it. Laterz

Correction he managed to take off part of the panel with door closed. Just enough to reach actuator.
