Does anyone know how to get the side door unlocked/ opened when the outside handle comes off? I can't get to the cargo area from the cab because of a bulkhead partition and the back is blocked by a wall (floor to ceiling) about three feet in from the back doors. :frown: I have tried fishing with a coat hanger, but don't know what I am trying to catch. :idunno:

there's a pic of the mechanism here http://sprinter-source.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16718&highlight=sliding+door+interior&page=2 . The cable pictured goes to the latch. I think (think) the outside handle pulls something which unlatches the back. The interior handle pushes a lever to the front of the van to open it, a little tab on the top toward the rear end of van on the mechanism.

I was thinking the same - moving that little tab.
