Had the same problem with a 95. Tryed kicking it open from inside, wouldn't budge. Took a 28 oz framing hammer, vicegrips and a crowbar to the ouside skin. Peeled enough away to get to the linkage and opened it. Got a replacement door at the junk yard for $100. Leave the hinges on the door and unbolt from the door. They mount up very nicely with little effort. Don't forget the wiring harness between the door and body. Good luck.
