Pass. Side sliding door stuck "locked". Pulled the panel off and cannot even manually unlock the door. (A) tried using lock rod to unlock and (b) removed lock rod and still cannot get it unlocked. Is it possible the electric motor has failed in a way that would cause it to "jam up"? Looking in the door, there isn't much room to work with. What's the best way to remove the power lock assembly? If you depress the door handle (like you are opening the door) and pull up ALOT on the door lock, the door will release and open. It does, however, remain locked once you close the door.
