1969-1982 Corvette My Corvette Door Won’t Open, Here Is How To Release It!

My Corvette Door Won’t Open, here is how to release it! Pushing downward on the lever shown will release the door even if the door is locked.
Getting to this lever can be a trick especially if you have the anti theft shields in place.  If you have the shields in place you’ll have to pry around it to get a long screw drive in place and this will more than likely damage the shield.   The shield is not mandatory for the lock or door to work, it was placed there to keep people from stealing the cars with a pick, or other object.
