Question about 2004 Lexus ES 330
I have a 2002 lexus es30. The driver's door have been shut for a week. Im not able to open the door from the inside or outside. All the information we have from the internet is how to remove the panel of the door but is always with the door open. How we can remove the panel even though the door can't be open. FYI the car is 2002 as mention before.

I believe that door can be opened. If you can open from inside or outside it must be a latch has come off under door handle...I've seen a cop once take the license plate off a car and stick it between the door jam by the door handle and slide it up and down and the car door came open...Worth a try..And a slim Jim down beside the door handle to catch that latch that's off would be worth a try to

unless you are mechanically inclinde don't mess with it get someoen you love and adore to do it for you, you can break the tabs that hold the door on and it can get expensive the worst part is it might not open at all if you don't understand how to operate it unless you have one of the experts here helping you with it step by step, but could take as much as 4 hours depending on your ability to work with your hands. Some people just don't need to own wrenchs they are a danger to themselves and the public at large, not saying they are not smart but just don't have the know how and motor skills. I am telling you this so you won't have a headache on your hands.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: door won't open from outside.
I was having the same problem with my 95 Lexus. When I removed the door panel and looked inside I was able to see the small rod that attaches to the outside handle was not connected. I tried to snap it back in but it wouldn't stay so I pulled the rod over where I could see that the small plastic part on the end of the rod that holds it in place had one side snapped off. Should be easy to fix once I locate the part. Just did this today and haven't looked for the part yet.
