I just worked on my brother's truck because he had the exact same issue. The problem is not the door latch. In fact if you remove it, like we did, all you see is that it only serves as a lever to move the mechanism. It does nor pull or push anything. The real problem lies in the cables. For some reason the factory cables are weak at the support point not the steel cable itself. What I mean is that the cables did not break but the plastic area where they are held in place by the mechanism failed. If you want to at least open the door so u can work on it, remove the panels to access the internal mechanism. There are two cables, one for the top and one for the bottom, pull on both cables at once and the door will open. Then just remove the top latch by removing the three srews and replace both cables. Hope this helps!
