My problem was the outside handle wasnt working, and the childlock was put on, and door closed. To open a door I couldn't get open from either side, I unscrewed the handle from the inside. I pulled the rod with my fingers, and it opened, then I put the rod on the one from the inside handle. I'm still figuring out how to take the panel off, or get to where the rod is on the outside handle. I cant reach far enough to put the rod back on the handle for the outside, so any help on that would be nice!~
