In the middle of...

In the middle of replacing the right rear door handle of my 2007 Tahoe LTZ the door accidently closed as I was mounting the handle. The inside door panel is off and the exterior handle is not connected. So, how do I now open the door?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tahoe yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Don't know what to try.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Just simply pull on the inner handle rod to open the door
