the latching system is fairly simple on the third door, the handle has a cable that goes to the botom latch, and another cable that goes to the top latch.

usually if the door won't release either the cable has popped off the handle or the latch, or the latch is broken.

if you need more info just reply back.

thanks

Mike I have everything apart. The handles and the cable to the bottom latch seem to work just fine. I need to know where the cable for the top latch runs and how I could possibly access it in order to check it operation. That is why iI was asking for a schematic or diagram to help me out. If i can get the door open I think i can figure things out.
