Hi turdroller,

This is a sticky problem that I never like to handle. The door latch is faulty and the only way to get it open is to break the latch.

You need to try to get the inner door linig out which is quite tricky as the door is closed and there are not much space. You would need to force the trim a bit.

The latch has a plastic part which has the latch lock spring in it and if you break the part and get the spring out, the door would open.

Was this
