Hi OP... the drivers door handle stopped working on my 2007 159 a few months back.. there is a steel cable running (internally) from the external handle to the lock mechanism,. you have to get access to this as if you were replacing a door window regulator ( this is almost a service item ). you won't need to remove the external handle to fix this.. but you may scrap knuckles and wrist in the process.

Here is a video I made the day I replaced in the new cable..... hope it helps somewhat as to the routing of the cable?
