The proper tool for the proper job job........
In this case the proper chemical for the job.
WD40 is a very good penetrating oil.
It IS NOT a good chemical to be used as a preservative type of spray
A good coat of wax/wadding polish on a set of wheels works allot better.......

It's also a good degreaser.

My GMC does not have an inside rear door release or even an inside lock for that matter.
My Ford has both.

The only interior latch for my 78 Dodge is like your picture Hoofbeats. But that is only for opening the left door. Does not help with getting out from the inside. Also agree on the GMC/Chevy release. It was on the bottom of the left door.

Just one of the few of there better ideas that did not turn to a huge PITA.......

I gueuss the designers figured the cargo does not need to get out from the inside.
Door locks and unlocks with a key just fine......

I absolutley agree! That is what I normally do for my wheels. Works good on the bike motor because of the black etc. The only reason I did w-D was because I was struggling to get everything done before my hyrnia surgery this am and I figured better than nothing!!

I've sure been hosed by my 81 B250 Dodge conversion quite a few times when the rear door's blown shut or my Son's reached in for a tool and shut the doors out of habit. A few weeks ago I had to call him on my cell phone to get me back out! That was embarrassing.

I've cut the lock mechanism out of a donor van to cure this situation sometime, probably when I pull the doors to paint them. The odd thing is that my 79 B100 had the interior handle and plunger of the same type as the side cargo doors. Must have been an option?
