There is, as I recall, a metal cable from the door handle to the lock. You separate the door handle from that cable and thereby from the lock and then open the door.
I called AAA for a lock-out service. They slim-jimmed the door lock. I got the panel off from the inside without damaging it but, crumbs, I did not take pictures. The statement above is what I recall doing but that could have been on something else. Anyone have the parts diagram?
i had to reach way back in the back and pop it out of the door lock mechanism to open it. once it's open you can re assemble ****. and order new yellow door lock rod clips from toyota too. if you bend the rod, you might be SOL.
