98 Ford Explorer Door Won't Open Part 2

Found a bar inside the door that needs to be in the up position. Found some posts on various forums where people used springs to fix the problems. Other paid hundreds of dollars to fix. I bought a spring at Ace hardware for a $2 fix. Door Panel clips look something like this: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/Dorman-3-pcs-GM-door-panel-trim-retainer/_/N-25lw?itemIdentifier=493554_0_0_

98 Ford Explorer Door Won't Open Part 1
Just showing the problem I was having with my '98 Ford Explorer. A couple weeks ago the door handle just stopped working on the driver door. All tension was lost in the handle. I couldn't use the remote to open. The remote would open all other doors. Sounded as if it wanted to open but just couldn't. I wasn't able to open from the inside either. I had to flip the door lock back and forth while pulling on the door lock pull and finally lucked out. I got the door open and pulled the panel off using a screw driver. Later I found you could get a door pull at Autozone for $9.99 probably would have been a lot easier.

Problem solving 89-94 Honda Accord drivers door that is stuck shut
This is the third one I have fixed, so I must be the local expert. haha! I've tried other suggested remedies with no luck. This is a video "how-to" of how I do it. Your results MAY vary. Older Honda Accord drivers door latchs have a special feature that makes you lock the drivers door from the outside so you can't lock you keys inside. If the latch fails, the door sticks shut. I mean, It REALLY sticks shut, like.... it will never open again without major intervention. Other videos show vague ways to drill the latch to try and pop it open, in theory this should work, I have tried for hours to no availg. My sugestion is to remove the plastic panel from the lower B pillar, remove the seat belt to the side and loosen the strike bolts from the back. You will destroy the strike, but these are cheap and plentiful
