When you say door latch, what exactly are you referring to? There is the locking latch, inner and outer opening latch, or the door jam latch? Take the door panel off, make sure that the window is up, and then you will have access to any of the latches. The door jam lock/opening latch will have some screws in it, 3 total, you can take those out and off for better access to the actual door lock mechanisms.

1994 nissan sentra drivers door wont open from inside or out is it possible to pop door latch with screw driver or anything to get door open so i can remove the door panel and get a better look at things

Here's a trick I learned from a local body shop where I live.
Get a sawzall and cut the post that the latch hooks to.

This will open the door for you. Then repair whatever is required in the door, and replace the post on the inside of the body is cheaper than damaging anything else in the door.

Good luck on this repair.
