Anyone opened rear door locking mechanism?

I can’t get the panel off to fix the locking mechanism. Seems like something is holding it on. Any ideas? Check my video.

Have you tried pulling the handle to release the door? It should pull right out after that.

Thanks, that helped a bit. My mechanism was glued in with silicone and something else. Got it out only to find that the keyed lock is separate and the locking pin was gummed up so the spring wouldn’t release it. Now I just have to figure out what is in the wrong position to allow the pull knob lock from pulling.
