Default Driver Side Door

The "outside" door handle on the driver side door of my 98 Camry will not
open the door. The lock and inside door handle still function properly.
Any ideas on what might be wrong and what parts might be necessary before
having to take off the interior door panel and taking a look?

Sounds like the control rod isn't connected to the outer handle - either
broken or has come loose. The only way to tell is to pop that door panel
off and have a look. Worst case you'll have to replace the handle.

Its a 90 cent (several years ago) plastic joint that connects the control
rod to the handle. They are typically broken when some one tries to get
into your car with a slim jim -- but they do break normally too. Wasy fix
once door panel is off. Get new front speakers and do at the same time (see
Crutchfield for correct ones).
