Welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be glad to assist you.
It sounds like you have a faulty door latch.
You will need to remove the door panel as much as you can. Then with the window up, use a long pry bar to reach the latch. Hit the latch (with hammer and pry bar) while a friend is trying to pull on the handle. Continue hitting the door latch until you brake it apart or the door opens.
Then replace the door latch.

FRONT DOOR LATCH AND LOCK ACTUATOR REMOVAL/INSTALLATION
It is located at the rear edge of the door. Located half way up from the bottom. Look at the passenger door. Open the door and look at the edge of the door where it latches to the body. There will be three screws securing it from the outside.
We can feel it but it feels like it has a metal case covering it. I do not think we could smash it. Is there no other way? Surely there is a rod or cable or latch we could flick to open this door. Your way does not fill us with confidence that we will be able to open it sorry???
We still cannot open the door trying your suggested way. surely there is another way?
Sorry but there is no other way unless you use a torch/sawsall and destroy your car.
Continue to brake apart the latch and eventually it will release the latch because there will be nothing left. Trust me I have and to do this several times. It will work.ThanksDrew
