Hi
Im a newb just joined, wondered if anyone could help ?
this morning the car was covered in frost so I defrosted the drivers door handle and lock (I thought) I opened the drivers door using a bit too much force, and now the door well not open on the outside of the car, but will open on the inside ? It also locks and unlocks with the fob, but although the door handle pulls open, the drivers door will not open, so I’m climbing over the passengers seat to get in !!
any help appreciated !! I have been on jagrepaire.com but cannot find a solution to the problem
Kind regards

The Exterior door handle is part of the lock assembly.
there are steel cables that run to the handles that operate the latch.
the cables connect the handles with a pin that can be disconnected (can just see it at the top of the image)
Could be the cable, pin or connector has broken or that the pin has dislodged.

Checking and fixing will require removal of the door card. if you're "hands on", this video breaks it down quite well
