driver's side back door not opening

It feels like the latch at the top of my driver's side back door on my supercab isn't releasing. Any suggestions?

Is it rusted? You could try PB blaster or WD40

I've never tried but I'm sure you can get the front part off enough to see the latch

wd40 mainly just lubricates and doesn't remove weaken rust. use PB blaster

something must be bent or broken, that latch is just refusing to be let go
