On a 1991 Aerostar van, how do I unstick the side door.

(1991 Ford Aerostar)
I loaned out the van; it came back with the side door not being able to open. I've tried locking, unlocking, prying, and removing the top inside panel, but not a budge. How do I get it open before it can even be fixed?

It has to be worked on in the closed position.... If opened... Can't get to anything... Van body is in the way if opened!.... Is the handle moving the latch at all?

I can't really tell. I do hear the mechanism on the far end when I pull the door handle, but I can' see if it has moved anything.

That's a tough repair even for a seasoned mechanic.... It's hard to help out much over the internet! Check out YouTube, maybe can find a video on how to at least get it open.... Then you can check the front latch.... Good luck.
