If trying to pop the latch does not work then I would attempt to remove the door panel with the door close. I attached the process below. The bottom screws are going to be the only thing that gives you trouble but they can be reached.
Basically the mindset that I would have is even if you have to cut the door panel out to get the door open, it is much cheaper then cutting a hole in the sheet metal to pop the latch as that is the last resort.
I have done this on this vehicle and it is not fun but can be done. Once all the screws are out, you have to pull the armrest up to disengage the clips. Again, this is tight but it can come out.
Below is the process from the manual.
Let us know what happens. Thanks
