Joe you need to undo the door handle 1st from inside, unscrew and take off the door handle then somehow grab the metal cable with a long magnetic stick tool or open the door by pulling the door handle rods towards you and only then you can possibly undo the door panel and re establish the connections of your cable. cheers.
