Left Rear Door will not open

The left rear door will not open, although the handle moves and the window goes down when I move it. The door feels like it's stuck at the bottom; it moves slightly. Has anyone seen this before and have an easy solution, or do we need to make a service call?

I had a bad module that stopped my door from working. Mine was a little different though. The rear driver door wouldn't do anything from either the inside or outside and then sometimes randomly would pop open. The window would act funny too. I have a video where pressing the window switch activates the door latch. Real weird stuff. When they finally fixed it I was told they swapped a drivers side control module. Its worked perfect ever since.

Solved by Mobile Tesla guy, who said he had never seen this problem before. The inside door panel had somehow scooted back a fraction of an inch so it was caught by the gasket on the door frame. Mobile guy adjusted the door panel in just a few minutes, and all is again well.
