First, walk around to the front and look just under the hood on the very front of the car in the middle. They circled the problem.
The hood is the flat part in front of you when you're in the drivers seat just outside the big flat window that keeps bugs from hitting you.
Then go in the drivers side and pull the visor mirror down to find the other problem.
Pry it from the outside with a bar or kick it real hard from the inside until it comes free while the latch is being held open. There really is no other way unless you can access the door latch stud and have the torx bit to take it out.

Pull the blanket.

Have someone hold the outer handle to open the door while you kick it open from the inside.

If it is jamming the mechanism do not try to pull from the outside of you may damage the handle. I would push from the inside while pulling on the door release handle. It that does not work then you may have to remove the inside panel.

Use body to push door all the way shut then try opening door

i don't see how this is preventing you from just opening the door normally
