what is causing the door not to open? is the inner pull handle broken, is it the locking system? At times you have to make drastic choices did u see saw? Anyways if it is the inner pull hadle that is broken you can take it off with a screw driver then there is a a rod with a 90 deg angle that catches on to the pull release it unlatching the little clip holding it to the door pull,then pull the rod towards the front of the car this should get it open. You can then replace the door pull for 13 bucks or so. If this does not work first check the price and availability of the inner door cover at the junk yard the use a box cutter to cut open the inner skin(the end towards the keyhole) to gain access to the entire locking mechanism. Open your door from there, the replace the skin with the replacement you would have bought.

It is impossible to remove the inner skin without opening as there are about 3 -4 screws that secure it from the base (check other door). So you have to destroy what is fine to move on
