Rear door wont open?

Ok hears the deal the rear drivers side door wont open. This is my winter X. I've replaced floppy door handles on this X before so i know what im doing with door problems. My problem is that the door wont open? The power door locks work but it seem that the black door knob is about maybe .25 of an inch down from the door that works.. This door handle isnt floppy and the interior handle is ok. Is it possible to take the interior panel off with the door closed? Im quessing thats what i have to do. Any other ideas maybe to fix this.

Plastic clips in the door need to be replaced.

Easy fix. Hard to to get to when the door is stuck closed.

The seat will be in the way. It is possible to remove the panel with it in place. But I would remove the seat...if it were me.
