Can you pull the snib button up ? You can reef it up with a bit force. If it comes off in your hand, a pair of pliers on the wire will unlock it.
Worked on mine, but if it doesn't, you have another problem.

Best to replace the Door lock mechanism,
At least you got it open and can remove the door trim to replace it.
the Wreckers would have them laid on, well they do here in Aus.

It may be just temperamental, locking/jamming for no good reason, or dust/rust. Pull the mechanism out and give it some WD40 and a clean.
