Actually, I suggest going to a junk-yard to get your parts. It will be much more expensive to get at your dealership or bodyshop, plus the huge huge huge labor fee. If you want to invest a few minutes to save yourself some time, look to see what other vehicles use the same door handle yours does, (it will be a toyota).

It's probably broken, or unhooked. Just take your inner door panel off, and you'll soon figure out what's happening. Sometimes the rods get bent, or they come off the clip, or just need adjusting. And sometimes the handle itself is broken, but you can do it!

You cant. Your local garage might be able to but not the consumer. Go to pep boys or one of the big auto chains. They sell repair manuals for most cars. Around $20-$30...well worth it.

If it's not unlocking, The only way o get it open is pop off the trim piece that goes around the window. On the bottom panel there might be two screws to remove on each side. If not then it will pop off to a point, because there are screws on the bottom you can't access. Pull it back and reach down and find the rods that go to the latch. usualy the one that is horizontal is the one that unlocks the hatch. move it left or right to unlock it, try the handle to see if it opens. If it doesn't reach again and open it from the other rod. Pull up on it. Good luck

Testimonial: "Perfect. Could not reach the cables because of a plastic housing, but the process of disconnecting and reconnecting the cables solved the problem."
It sounds like tha door latch is getting stiff, it needs some lubrication. I wouls spray some penetrating fluid into it through the spot where it catch's the door post and work the latch by hand several times until it moves freely. You may have to do this several times, or over the course of a couple days to get it free. Don't be shy with the penetrating fluid. Once you have it working freely, respray it with a spray lube such as white lithium grease. This should keep it working. Don't forget the other doors. Hope this helps.
