I have a 2006 Xterra S model and right rear door is stuck closed. Can't open from inside or out. I have the inside handle cover removed and can see the cables move but will not unlock or open. I have new parts but need to get the door open. Any suggestions?

The lock mechanism is probably tripped at the latch...usually you can u untrip it if you can see it, if not, it's a fun time

So you pull on the mechanism and nothing happens? Sounds like something got caught in there somewhere. Try sticking some vice gtrips on there and giving it a good long firm jerk. lol
Or the cables came/broke off the mechanism...I've seen the lock one break while the door was shut and locked and the only way we could get it open was to cut the door panel so we could access the latch...do you have tension on the lock when you activate it by hand, or does it feel loose? Can you hear it actually working, etc...But seriously if the lock(by lock inside I mean the indicator inside where you can visually see if the door is locked or not) inside feels ok, if it does X2 on the vice grips...a cable is cheaper than a door panel...lol
