= How do you replace the rear dutch door latch on a 1997 gmc safari?" =
Pull the door panel off, remove the door latch assembly from inside the door, and replace the switch which is hold onto the latch with one screw on the backside of the latch.
Just going by the question...I would say that the latch has gotten in "the closed door position". Be sure that the door is unlocked. With your finger lift out on the latch on the end of the door and use the door handle to "open" the door latch.
Remove door panel and replace latch mechanism
Climb into the rear storage area from the back seat and using a screw driver remove the door skin from the hatch. This will give you access to the linkages and latch mechanisms from the inside. You can then put your hand down to the latch inside the door and by pulling on the metal bar linking the latch to the handle you can open the door.
Did you check the door latch/lock. The latch part might be broken on the inside. If you have the door already open it is easy to chisel out the old door latch inside of the door.
Pull the INSIDE handle as if you were going to open the door and then use a flat blade screwdriver ( or any screwdriver ) to move the latch sections apart
It is in the door latch. You need to replace those switches. There are two in the drivers door and one in the passengers door. Take the door panels off and remove door latch and replace swithes.

You didn't explain much of what was wrong, but with my cougar I thought it was the latch, but it was actually having to replace the bushings in the door hinge. It used to be that you could just by the bushings kit, but now you have to by the whole set up.
It is inside the latch itself.
If I understand you right the door is opened and won't close because the latch is tripped. Lift up on the door handle and take your finger or a screw driver and move the latch to the open position
Check the adjustment shims on the Hinges of the door. You may have to remove or add shims. If you add shims to the bottom hinge the door will rise, if you add shims to the top hinge the door will lower. But be careful not to add to many, it will cause the door to be extended, and vise versa with the removal of shims. If it does not latch you may want to see about haveing the latch replaced. Also, check to see if the door latch is engaged while the door is open. If it is simply left the handle and use a screw driver to lift the latch back into position.

It has a retainer on the inside of the door. Take the door panel off.

I am having an issue with my drivers side door sensor. I have yet to do anything with it, but from what I know about VWs (i have owned and worked on them for 12 years) the door sensor is located in the door latch. I am currently looking into whether I can replace just the sensor or if i have to replace the whole latch...I read that the latch costs about 150.00. to install it, you would have to remove the door panel which can be tricky.
You have to remove the inside door panel to get access to the door handle nuts.
Unit is incorporated in the door latch and is not serviced. You'll have to replace the latch assy.. Where is the sender for the automatic doorlock?
The door light switch for these cars is in the door latch. It is not visible by opening the door and examining the latch. If the switch is not functioning you will have to replace the latch. I have heard of cases when doors are slammed too hard that the wire connector comes loose.
Look on the driver door for a label near the latch with the door open.
