Question: Sliding side doors

OK the sliding back door on the drivers side will only open from the inside. The sliding door on the passenger side can be opened from the inside if done just right but its getting harder and harder mostof the time we have to open it from the outside, so I got one that only opens from the inside and one that is close to only opening from the outside
