My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer/Pearl. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

From what you have described here this sounds like a fault with the door latch/lock assembly itself that is either bound up or has failed.

Usually the only way to get at this latch/lock assembly is to remove the door trim paneling.This can be difficult to do with the door closed like this and I have seen in many cases where the paneling can become damaged when removed like this unfortunately.

The other option is to try a local lock smith to see if the lock smith can get the door opened or try locking and unlocking the door several times to see if the latch releases then.

I know this is probably not the answer you were looking for here but with this type of fault here these are usually the only options.

Thanks Pete
