thanks for the replies,

the problem is the latch on the underside of the door wont release. Ive given quite a few good heel kicks and once aggravation set in I shoulder checked it pretty good. I also tried using prybars to pry it open with no luck. When I pulled the working one out I messed with it and figured out how to wedge a screwdriver in and release the latch manually, but cant do it on the stuck door because there is not enough room.

Talking to my dad about it more, I found out that it worked perfectly one day and after he had a blow out it stopped working. so guess something inside the latch itself bent and isnt allowing the lever to release it.

As of now, the best I can think of to get it open to fix it is to cuz the bar the latch grabs with a sawzall and just replace both, but even cutting it would be a pain because of the lack of space.
