My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Since this is a 2017 model it would be best to allow the dealer or authorized repair center to look this over to warranty repair it at no cost to you.If you were to tamper with it this can actually void the warranty on the part tampered with.

Since it is a 2017 model, unfortunately, I don't show a schematic or diagram for this model here on the door parts or latch.If you wanted to attempt to tamper with it you would need to obtain the schematics of the door from a dealer in most cases.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
