I cannot get the drivers side door on my camry open. I can un lock it or lock it. But the handles don't seem to disconnect the black plastic thing from the striker, it seems that a spring has come off of the piece the the inside handle connects to near the top of the mechinism. Now the spring is gone. Is there a specific piece I can try to get ahold of with a coat hanger or something to open the door. Then I can take the pannel off and have e better look

The missing spring means the lever for unlocking is stuck in the locked position and unless you are able to push the lever to unlock, there is no other way of getting the latch to release.
