Door Wont Open

The inside pull handle on my TJ has been broken for awhile but I just kept pulling from the outside and it worked fine. Well now it won't open from the outside. Anything I can do short of cutting the door panel up?

What kind of doors do you have? And instead of cutting it, try removing the hinge and seeing if you can pull it open enough to access the panel screws.

Stock doors. I haven't driven it all winter and just assumed they were frozen shut. Not the case right now. I'll give it a shot.

Wrangler door panels can be removed with the door closed - I've had to do it.

You can get to all 5 screws easily, and it just takes some finesse to pop off the panel and work it up and off with the door closed.
