How do you repair the drivers side rear sliding Door that won't open on a 1996 Chrysler Town and Country Lxi van?

Remove the inner door panel & you should be able to manually work the inner rods that control the operations of the latch assembly. If that doesn't work, I have had to actually do the above, & physically kick the rear section relatively hard to free up a lower rear latch mechanism that sometimes becomes rusted & will not allow the door to open.
