    So im at work and decide to go get a Monster from cvs. When i get there i look my doors and walk inside. So as im coming out i hit my keyless entry and i hear my doors unlock, but when i lift the handle i hear a little "ting" and the door wont open. so i then i hit the keyless entry once more and try to open my door again but nothing. I then open my passenger door and climb into my driver seat and call it a day and go home. when i get home i get out of my taco dukes of hazard style and grab some tools. heres the problem......THE DOOR WONT OPEN TO TAKE OFF THE PANEL!!! i then had to take out the driver seat and tear open what i can of the door panel. i then took off the rear door panel so i could see how it was configured bc i could only see much with the door panel still on. i was then able to open the door but heres the next problem, the only way for me to access the locking latch to fix the problem was to completely remove the window, then the sliding track bc it had a shield that blocked access to the latch while it was still installed.3 1/2 hrs later from me initially starting my little endeaver i found that it was a damn spring that busted. 4.99 fix from autozone.

    RIP Lucy.
    She's gone but not forgotten.
    It's the little stuff that gets ya the worst sometimes. At least you have the skills to fix it yourself...I know a lot of people that would have paid hundreds to get that fixed.
