Driver door wont open

Welp, this sucks..

Anyways, my driver door wont open at all. No pressure what so ever from the outside handle, and the inside handle isnt opening it either. Luckily the door pannel is already off. Lock mechanism works (though nothing connects it to the outside lock), rod isnt bent, and ive played with the little plate that the outside button hits. But to no avail, it wont open. It did this to me once before and fixed itself after a few jiggles, but not this time.

And of course this had to happen as i roll up to a car meet.

Door panel was probably off because the previous owner had the same problem. Shocked that he didn't mention this problem prior to selling it to you. You will need to find a door lock mechanism activation rod.

Probably going to need to rebuild the door hinges as well as that was probably the reason the door latch was not working originally.
