Sacrifice the front grille.? The cable pull is just off centre to the left hand side if newage. or maybe zoo could get it with long nose pliers? Some manufacturers have specific places to drill the grill and then lever the latch with a screwdriver in cases of cable snapping.

I am imagining it's a classic therefore AA would pop the door in no time then use the release Or indeed kill the grille

Very easy to get into car with no window frame. Use a good old fashioned coat hanger

A piece of copper piping on that cable would have caused you problems
