1st - ahh haahahahahahahah


2nd - either your going to have to try and remove the inside door skin from inside the car, or get a slim jim tool to pull the lever manually from outside the car, (sorta like guys that break into cars do). your controls might have became unattached from the levers, or possibly brok apart the mechanism so you won't be able to use the handles.. can't garuntee it wil work, but it is a start and a damn good one... 1st try getting the panel off the inside door.... Remove the screws, and the bottom just clips on, if you can pull you will get it off....

one possible fix is to lube the door latch but you will have to get the door open first. I have seen this alot, I know it sound retarted but I am a tech at bmw and I know what I am talking about. The way I usually get the door open is pull latch from inside and push as hard as you can. If this doesn't work let me know.

i actually have a similar problem with my passenger door, the inside level needs to be pulled pretty hard (my friends always think i locked them in the car and that they will break it if they pull on it) and the outside doesnt respond out at all. I just got my locks redone on my drivers side door so i took a good look at how things are supposed to be connected and im going to be taking the passenger side door apart to make sure its all hooked up correctly and that none of the bits are worn out/bent. I just need to buy a few torx drivers or whatever they are so i can get the passenger side off.
