Inside passenger door handle

My door handle will no open the door. It works on the outside it locks like normal. I take it one of the cables is compromised.
Has anyone had this problem before.

pull the door panel off. behind the handle there is a plastic retainer ring, or clip (I cant remember) that holds the the rod that activates the latch. If your lucky it just came out and didnt break. If it did sometimes you can epoxy it and repair it.

Okay looks like the door latch is sticking a bit, I will probably have to replace the door actuator at some point.

Had to replace the rear driver door actuator a few months ago and the part was ridiculously expensive. Used a ratchet strap tied to the other door to keep it somewhat closed, but eventually had to collect me pennies and purchase a new door lock actuator.

This just in from the underground. The 2011+ Caprice door lock actuators fit a Pontiac G8 and are somewhat cheaper.
