back door stuck shut

HI all, we have a 1999 dodge 3/4 ton diesel cab and 1/2, rear door has just stuck shut..any ideas on how to open and fix?? (think it is the bottom latch that is not working)
Thanks! Cathy

I read about this a week ago. don't recall whether it was here or the TDR. You might try a google or search the TDR.

From what I've read the bottom latch rusts up. Use some PB Blaster or the like and drown it and let it soak in for a day or so. I suppose if you can't get it open a sawzall to the bottom anchor and replace parts as needed.

arghh - sawzall sounds just a wee bit more agressive than I'd like!! I'll try the other first thanks
