96 Yukon barn door won't open
I recently bought a 96 Yukon. I love it, but it needs a little TLC. I have the rear barn doors, and the passenger side door opens fine, but the driver side door won't open at all. When I pull on the handle it will unlatch at the top, but the bottom latch stays closed. What can I do to fix this? I've tried hosing what I can reach down with WD40, but it's still stuck fast.

If you can't get it open, you will have to pull the panel from the inside. Chances are that a rod clip is broken or came off the bottom latch or the handle.

Getting the panel off is a piece of cake... just be conscious of sun brittle with those panels i was too aggressive with mine and had to make a junk yard run.

Welcome to The Club. I agree with Pikey. I had the same thing happen to me. The rod clip came off.
