Default Door wonít open. Suggestions?

Door wonít open, from the outside or the inside. Iím assuming itís a door latch issue and Iíve seen videos about removing the latch mechanism, but I canít get the door open to access the latch bolts in the door seam to remove it. How do I get the door open?. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance

Is the door locked? If you roll the window down you can look and see what is going on. Maybe reach in with a hook and work the latch.

or do what we did in our younger years. . . . use the other door.

Below is a pic of the door latch, you need to reach in from the rear of the door and determine if the lock lever is engaged preventing you from opening the door, or the release lever rod has jumped not opening the door. If you can't get to the latch from the rear of the door window opening, try removing the plug at the bottom of the door, just below the latch. Coat hanger time. . .

I’ll try that. I’m not sure if the door is locked or unlocked... it doesn’t pull up or down right now so I’m not sure. Using the handle from the inside and the outside doesn’t work either.

I have the inside of the door removed so I’ll try and take a look at the mechanism from the inside. Just a hard angle to get to. Thanks guys
