Default Door lock problem

Help! multitude of problems here. First my window motor on the drivers side is out. Second i hit my door lock on the passenger side this past saturday and the door will not open. It will not open from the inside and it will not open with the key from the outside. Also the door lock inside will not manually move nor will it move when you hit the electric door lock switch. How on earth can i get the door open in order to get the door panel off to fix the problem...? thanks....

p.*. im new here but i plan on being around.. appreciate any advise i can get.

First off...where are you from?

You might not need to open the door to get the panel off. Sounds like something in the linkage hosed pretty bad and that'* the issue. When you say you hit the lock and now it doesn't open, did you hit it with another car?

Im from Clinton, Ms.outside of Jackson. No. i didnt hit it with another car. I pushed the switch from the inside of the car. Then tried to immediately open the door from the inside. It would not open.

I believe the car was hit before i owned it...but the door was replaced along with the hood and a fender.
It worked fine for a year but failed to open one day when i moved the electric door lock master switch to unlock the doors. Its stuck in the unlock position ...also the inside door handle will not open the door...and when i try the key to open the door from the outside it will not open. The manual door lock inside the car will not move manually. How do i get the door open to get the panel off. Ive been told to find someone with a slim jim.........what do you think?
thanks
michael
