98 astro cargo rear barn door stuck

Postby StillSmiling [OP] » January 22nd 2021, 5:09am

Hello everyone, hoping someone here can help. I'm having trouble with my rear passenger side door and it will not longer open. Some of the things I have read on here include:

- remove interior door panel and pull rods in opposite direction
- door needs to be greased
- door is not shut all the way which prevents the locking mechanism from resetting

So my door handle broke in the past so I've already been using the rods to open the back door. I have tried lubricating it. I checked under my door from the inside and found some screws under my door, which I removed. I then went outside and tried to push the door to see if it would latch but no luck. So here I am hoping one of you majestic van owners has a solution for me

I've tried bashing it with my butt but didn't have any luck.

Is there any components in the locking mechanism that could have fell off or bent that would cause it not to work?

Might have to just cut it off of there and put a Junk yard door on it.
