the only way i've been able to get a door open when both handles aren't working is to get those strips of metal (not sure what the name of them is) that locksmiths or tow truck drivers use to get doors unlocked and try to play around with the latch inside the door. there are rods that go to the door lock cylinder on the outside of the door, the door handles, and the lock button. there's really no other way to get the door panel off unless you destroy the door panel to get to the latch. it takes patience but it can be done without destroying anything.
