    Hi, I just noticed this after removing and reinstalling the door panels. When I lock all the doors the rear door will not open from both outside and inside using the handle but the front will open from the inside handle but not the outside handle. Is this normal? I didn't notice this before since I rarely try to open the door while it's locked from the inside. I'm thinking this is normal for the front and the kids can't open the rear door without the driver let them out. I know the rear have a kids lock out but none for the front. A passenger can open the passenger door by just pulling the handle even when the door is locked! Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    did you check the cable connections inside the door before tightening everything down? It sounds like its mechanical in nature
