Hello my name is Scott
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
Do you have a screwdriver ir something rigid to insert into the latch?
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
If you do, insert it into the latch and at the same time, pry on the latch while holding the inner door handle in the open position, this is usually all it takes to reposition the latch.
