The metal clasp pins that lock onto the pin/knob when the cart is opened up. To close the cart you hit the button at the top of the cart that opens the clasp and releases the pin / knob. I need the new clasp two metal bars attached by a spring, as existing one is worn and will not hold the pin / knob when in open position

There are some linkage pieces that go from the indoor handle to the release clasp that latches onto the car body. There are another set of linkage bars that will connect the outside handle to do the same thing. These rods will sometimes connect together and work on a common part to release the clasping device.
The other part of the door opening system incorporates the actual key lock and the pin inside the vehicle. These both will have more linkage parts that will catch on the release linkage and keep it from moving the clasping device. These linkage parts can become worn or even bend over time . They will then twist slightly and not stay in the groves or holes provided. This will cause them to slip past the moving parts and not push or pull on the clasping device.
The door will have to have the interior cover removed to observe the parts that move inside the door. They may need a new plastic bushing to keep the parts in line with each other or may need to be bent back into the proper shape if deformed. If the car was in an accident these parts may not have been fixed properly or the bushings may have simply fallen out of place due to slamming the doors.
This is usually a problem found on most older cars that have simply been worn or the bushings have broken in cold weather etc.
The hardest part of this repair is just getting the panel off without ruining it or yanking on the wires.
I would find a service manual that shows the removing of the interior and also details the door assembly before even thinking of starting on this.
If the door wouldn't close how did you close it to lock it and have to exit out the passage side door? Anyway if the door is open like you said and it's locked you can easily access the locking mechanism without removing the side panel. It's on the side of the door, not the inside and not the outside, but the thin strip visible only when you open the door. There will be two metal pieces that clasp together. You can separate them manually, this will unlock the door.
Give the locking "jaws" a good dose of WD-40 and start with a pair of pliers ans working the door handle get the "jaws" moving and work it a lot while keep dousing it with the lubricant. Worst case scenario would be that the spring that opens the jaws is broken and will need replaced. Please rate this answer, thanks.
There's a special tool designed to release the lock ring behind the
crank. The tool slips in between the
door and crank and releases it. You could also use two metal objects to
push on both ends of the opening to pop the pin out. This pin will go
flying when it pops off. You can also take an old terry
cloth towel and slip the hemmed or finished edge between the crank
handle and the door and
slide it back and forth with an upward pressure. The towel will catch
on the points of the locking ring and pop it right off.
i take it ur talking about fuel filler cap.the metal pin is worked by a electic soleniod.this is access by rmoeving the boot trim and carpet and possible the light unit on the rear passenger side.a gentle tap ,or maybe takin out and cleaning may solve.the soleniod is usually a push and twist or has retaing bolt/screw.
MAKE SURE THE DOOR LATCH IS NOT IN THE LOCK POSITION OPEN DOOR PULL THE INSIDE LATCH TO THE POSITION WHERE YOU WOULD TO OPEN DOOR AND TAKE FINGER AND TRY TO MOVE THE LATCH TO ANOTHER POSITION , HOPEFULLY TO THE POSITION WHERE IT WILL RECEIVE THE STRIKER POST OR THE PART THE DOOR WOULD NORMALLY LATCH ON
