2010 Accent, 4 Door. People can let me out of the driver's seat from the outside door handle, but my inside handle moves smoothly but does not open the door from inside anymore. Manual windows and manual doors.
I cannot locate a door / lock assembly sketch/manual/drawing.
Does this door have those stupid metal rods like Chrysler, or does it have cables like you have on bicycle handbrakes?
1- Diagram of what things look like before I tear the door off?
2- Suggested supplier of door opening rods/cables?
3- Is it worth the time to try and install an electric lock while I've got the door torn apart?
4- Body service manual somewhere that covers door repair?
I feel like John-boy Walton having to roll down the window and use the exterior door handle to get out of the car, so any help appreciated before the monsoons hit!
Thanks!

As for getting inside. The screws will have a trim cover. The main ones are by the handle. They screw into the inner door frame.

You might try Youtube for a video.

It has stupid bicycle brake cables that stretch and snap. A solid rod (like the older Hyundai models have) does neither. But it might just have come adrift from the handle and need reattached....a 10min job.

Nope.

THIS is for the later model but it wont be much different to your car.
