    Hello before I rip my door apart is was wondering if you could give me some hints or what to look out for..

    Truck 2003 2500 Ram

    Problem.. The door lock is very, very stiff. It is almost impossible to unlock the door with my key(no power doors or windows). Also hard to push the lock on the door down to lock the door..

    I know I have to open the door up but any idea's what i should look for, or not do?

    I can't help you on the lock fix except for possibly lubing everything up.

    To remove the door panel is very easy. Remove the screws on the bottom of the door, remove the screw by the inner door handle and remove the screw by the mirror. The door panel then lifts straight up and out. You may need to remove the door handle as well.
