You can see in the door now. Pull the the cable and release the latch to open the door for easier access. The piece that conects is plastic and breaks easy. this is the part I don't remember very well. Take a pull tie and rig the broken cable to the latch where it is supposed to be conected. Hope this was helpful.
If I understand your steps, This first thing I need to do is to remove the screws around the window latch and then pop off the top panel, then I can remove the bottom panel. Then the repair is to RIG the broken cable at top with a locking tie strip? No welding is involved? or Cable replacement?
