2006 Outback, driver side rear door will only unlock/open with the interior handle. It will lock with the remote or door master, but not unlock. I'm guessing something has come undone at the latch, but there are no obvious attatch hardware for the panels, and just tugging on them only bruises my tender fingertips!

Before I start prying at things with my biggest/widest blade screwdriver, what am I missing?

Thanks all.

Take out the screw in the handle (under the plastic cover) pry off at the bottom (towards you)  Then lift up once the door panel is free from the door
