    Take the interior panel off to access the locking/open mechanism. Sounds like something is stuck

    Outside the door there is a green land rover emblem. Take a small screw driver and pry it off. It just pops off. Behind there is a mechanism that gets stuck. Det PB Blaster or WD-40 and spray it on the mechanism. (It's like a metal paddle taht you have to move up and down) You just have to work it up and down and eventually it will start to slide smoothly. It's a common problem. Good luck
