Angry 280ce passenger door won't unlock Help

Help, My 1978 passenger door is locked and I cannot unlock it with the key or from the inside. The lock just stays shut and the door handle won't pull out. I unplugged the vacuum system to no avail. There is nothing stuck between the door and car that may have misalligned the door. The door is firmly shut, not partially. Any help would be great. Thanks

I believe you can remove the door panel from the inside, but you will need new clips and need to repair the tears in the cardboard panel. At least you will have access.
