It's hard to remove the door interior trim panel with the seat in your way. I usually use a "slim jim" (used to brake into a car) to manipulate the door lock linkage so I can open the door. If you've not done it before you may want to remove the passenger door panel to understand how the door lock and linkages operate. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate
