That going to be a good one. Might be able to get in there if you slide drivers seat all the way back. Remove all screw that you can get to. Should be one in inside door handle area along with possibly a clip there too. Should be another inside the handle area of door panel. And two along the back edge of the door. Then pull out and up on door panel. Probably wont come all the way off but should be able to reach in behind it enough to work the door latch right at the latch mech. Hope this helps and good luck. If inner handle is broke right at handle might also be able to reach in there with needle nose pliers and pull door release rod.
