Q: driver door will not open. Lock is broken. on 1996 Acura Integra

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My 1996 Acura integra driver door will not open. It cannot be unlocked with my key, from inside the car or by removing the interior handle/lock cover and trying to manipulate it. It's a manual lock in the handle. The door is closed so I cannot take off the door panel.I can get in the car by opening the passenger door and climbing into the drivers seat.

Drivers seat would need to be removed , and even doing that , you would most likely only reduce the amount of damage to the panel , not eliminate it. Might try calling a local auto locksmith experienced with that situation? Maybe they will be able to unlock it so you can open it and then remove the panel for diag. & repair without breaking the door panel.
