Hey guys,

recently picked up a dodge b200 and the passenger door is sealed shut for some reason. All the door locks and handles work fine but as hard as I try I cannot open this passenger door. The previous owner used rhino coat on the cabin floor and Im thinking he must have shut the passenger door while the rhino coat was drying and got it stuck shut. Does anyone have any suggestions unsticking this door? Any good solvents for rhino coat removal?

I would start by taking the inside panel off on the door and making sure the door mechanisms and locks are all hooked up to the proper rods and controls. Maybe put some kerosene or similar solvent on the inner door opening around the door step and see what happens. Be careful you don't damage the outside paint on the rocker panel. From the inside, take your feet and push on the door.
