    Hey, just bought my '03 TRD a couple days ago and noticed the the rear driver door does not open from the inside.

    I'm wondering if this is a common problem and if there is an easy fix. I don't know much about maintenance on these kinds of things (n00b).

    Thanks.

    The inside of doors are generally pretty simple. The hard part is actually getting your hands in there to any sort of work. I would just pop the door panel off and start from there. My guess is something just came loose. Let us now what you find and we will be able to help a little better.

    Isnt there a "switch" on the door you can see when opened that enables a "Child Safety" feature in which the doors can only be opened from the out side?

    Haha. Yeah, you'll see lots of these from me I'm sure.
