Is there anything connecting the handle to the door latch assembly? Is the lock cylinder in the key hole and secured? It just sounds like the linkage may have slipped off the door handle

I have a 2004 Mazda 6 & this happened to me.
I have found the easiest way possible to get the door open without having to remove the interior trim.
1, wind down drivers window.
2, remove carefully the exterior window seal trim
3, about 6" down is the door handle lever, use a screwdriver to unclip the door handle & slide out the rod
4, use a wire coat hanger with a loop on the end or a thin piece of flat steel with a hole in the end
5, hook the wire into the rod & activate the door lock with the key & push the wire down & pull it all the way up & this should trick the lock. IT worked for me.
Was easy from there on & all that needed replacing was the spring inside the lock. A common problem I believe.
Either modify the spring or replace it.
Best of Luck
