This is common, the door lock actuator is frozen, when this happens the lock wont move, some of these the actuator is part of the latch, look at the lock linkage for the door lock lever and follow to latch and see if you locate another linkage arm from actuator, remove that arm and then unlock the door , hope this helps.

I have a 2006 chevy impala and the passenger door wont open. How can i take the door panel off while its shut?

According to how close the seat is to the door, it may be easier to pull out the seat to facilitate removing the panel. Sadly the retaining screws may be impossible to get to with the door closed. I'm thinking the Impala has clips and the screws will all be accessible on the face of the panel. If you can get all the bezels and armrest/door handle hardware loose you may be able to pry up from the bottom to pop the panel out of the slits the clips are in.

Passengers door won't open

Are both of the door handles broken and not moving the lock rods enough to trip the lock mechanism? Do you feel any resistance when operating the handles? If there isn't suffcient clearance between the door and passenger seat to pop the panel clips out of the holes they are seated in then you may have to break the panel to remove it. This would need to be a last resort method to access the door lock mechanism to open the door, but sometimes it is the only way.

By hook or by crook the door panel must be removed in order to access the internal mechanism even if it must be badly damaged and need replacing. It is usual to remove the seat to improve access.

How do I remove the inside door panel on my 2006 HHR

on the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.
