If the mechanical 'cables' are not working (lock/unlock with key, use handle) you're pretty much out of luck. You cannot get the doorpanel off without opening the door.
If your handle isn't working, try removing the interior door handle and working with the lock 'cables' gl, as if that doesn't work you'll more than likely need a new doorpanel.
Some cars, you can pry the door side out. You'll be lucky to not have 2 door lock end out after doing that in a prelude lol.
