Door handle issues, with added stupidity

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have a weird situation that I am hoping someone can help with.


I have a 2005 Outback, and the rear door (driver's side) wouldn't open from the outside. Opening from the inside was no problem. I pull the panel off and see that a plastic bit is broken and decide to replace after a half-considered attempt to epoxy back together fails


I decide to tackle this today and get a new exterior door handle assembly and pop it in no problem. I wasn't thinking and decided to try it out with the panel on and popped it back in and shut the door without reattaching the cables that release the door and open it from the inside. Oops.


Now the door won't open at all from the inside or outside, and I am not sure was the solution is. Any ideas?
