You'll probably have to remove the inner door panel and trip the latch to open the door. Once the panel is removed you'll be able to look and see if the latch has failed or if the linkage has detached in some way. Hope this helps

YOU ALSO CAN DRILL THE HEADS OFF THE STUDS THAT HOLD THE HANDLE(round, flat heads behind the handle) ON AND REACH THROUGH THE HOLE AFTER YOU HAVE REMOVED THE OLD HANDLE, USE A PAIR OF NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS AND TRIP THE LATCH. AFTER THE DOOR IS OPEN THERE IS AN ACCESS PANEL INSIDE THE DOOR JAM HELD ON BY FOUR PHILLIPS HEAD SCREWS. YOU CAN RETRIVE THE REMAINDER OF THE STUDS AND NUTS THROUGH THIS OPENING. GOOD LUCK!!
P.S. THE HANDLE WILL MOST LIKLEY HAVE TO BE REPLACED ANYWAY SO DON'T WORRY ABOUT DAMAGING THE OLD ONE.
