As the original poster I would like to say thank you to the answerer who responded in a variation of this question. @8^) If you look under the plastic lever you will see a copper colored bar that runs parallel to the handle insert a small flat bladed screwdriver and gently push the bar towards the dash when you do that the door will open. There are two Phillips screws holding the latch mechanism the best way to unscrew them is to either use a stubby screwdriver or a 1/4" ratchet with a socket to fit a screwdriver bit. The new part can be ordered for about fifteen dollars at the local dealer.
