'81 Biarritz - release thrown door latch ?
I washed my '81 Biarritz today and as I was wiping down the inside of the door itself I accidentally threw the sort of U shaped latch. For the life of me I cannot figure how to get this to release again. The door will not close with this latch in the upright position. I am sure it is a simple fix, but I cannot figure out.

Hold the door handle in the open position and pull it open with a screwdriver.

That did the trick. I knew had to be something simple. Thanks Hunter!!
