How do you open a rear door on a 2001 Malibu when the child lock is engaged and the handle on the outside is broken?

If it's anything like the 1999, there should be a grommet on the frame that you can get to if you fold the seat down and pull the trim out of the way. It sits right in front of the child safety switch, giving you access.

Remove the inside door panel and replace the outside handle. If the outside handle is limp, the arm that attaches to the rod that connects to the lock has probably broken off.

Seperate valve for outside faucet turned off, broken valve stem inside of outside faucet or handle stripped at faucet.

The problem is that the inside door handle is broken. Although the inside door handle needs replacement you can still open the door by pulling on the lock lever above the handle.
