Unhappy 98 Boxster passenger door wont open, Please Help

After the snow melted i decided my boxster deserved a well earned spin, when i arrived back home my wife could'nt open the passenger door. The window does the usual 1 cm drop but thats it, its as if there is a child look on as it opens from the outside but accourding to the manual it dosent have a child lock. Any info would be much appreciated.

Try this first:

Give the door on the outside near the door handle a quick smack with your fist.
I notice that this solves the occasional issue when I am trying to get into my driver's door, and the handle triggers the window, but won't actually open the door.

Its not how fast you go, or how expensive your toys are.
Its all about how big your smile is at the end of the day that truly matters.

Same thing on my 98 Boxster, intermittently. I give it a smack with an open palm if I'm outside, just forward of the handle, or a punch to the same location if I'm on the inside.
