2004 Freestar, Driver Door wont open from either inside or outside handle-URGENT on 2004 Ford Freestar

2004 Ford Freestar, Driver Door won't open from either inside or outside handle. Locks move up and down with both remote and key but door won't open. In a desperate situation and need help how to open this door ASAP please. Can't afford new/special tools or mechanic, on disability. Was told after I get it open (need help here ASAP please), then I just remove the panel (screws around the ends) and put a rod back in place and a clip back on the rod, sound right?
