    that's what I'm thinking...
    What's the easiest way to tear thru sheet metal?
    Sawzall or angle grinder

    Maybe I missed something, but have you tried reaching your hand through one of the holes and yanking on the latch rod?
    yup, interior panel is off, full access to rods. Everything looks like they move freely.

    Latching unit itself may be jammed up... I can't really access it until I cut open the sheet metal and get a good look and see how it really operates.

    To be clear, when you move the lock rod back and forth, can you feel lock engage and disengage?

    Hey guys, got the door off!
    @Thaco came by and was a big help. He yanked the locking unit off and was able to directly jimmy the latch open with a long screw driver.
    Some how that small crumple at the top of the door obstructed the latch from fulling opening.
