Exclamation 1996 es300: Cannot open driver door inside/outside

I now cannot open my driver side door from the inside or outside now. After researching, I believe its the yellow plastic clip that holds the metal rod in place thereby connecting the inside latch with the outside latch. Not a problem. The first issue facing me is how in the world do I get the door open to start working on it? Will a slim jim actually be able to grab a hold of anything to manually move the mechanism holding the door in place? Please help.
