Use the passenger door and l look at the latch. You might run into a bit of a frustration on this one. Now, first do me the favor of thinking about contacting your Honda dealership and posing this problem to them. If they give you a big run around and don't decisively know a solution then consider this as a solution for you to try. From the outside of the car you will probably not be able to see the latch or striker. Look at the same side back door and you will see the angles needed to be used. You can try a blade off the saw and see how this pans out. Also, I would then once you have the blade shaped to catch the striker wrap a couple of layers of electrical tape around the blade to protect the paint of the door. I would then insert the blade in the door, (working from the outside) and feel the striker from the top. Hook up the saw and let it slowly cut the striker.
Good luck, I have done this before with success but it is up to you.
