maybe you misunderstood me.
i gave you the ONLY way to get to the door latch with the door closed. I had one just like this 2 weeks ago that I had to get open.
My advice was what to do with the door CLOSED so you can access the cables to the latch mechanism and try to manually work it open.
you cannot get the door opened if it's seized without taking the door panel off, which is why i explained how to get the door panel off with the door closed. I wouldn't be talking about breaking door clips if the door was open......
using my method you don't have to get the door open to get the panel off, that's how you get the panel off WHILE ITS CLOSED.
