Take it apart more.
Practically every dash piece is held on by every other piece.
Just keep taking it apart untill you can get the door open (don't forget how to put it back together) and then examine the latch to determine why it does not function. You might have to dismantle the center console to get to the passanger side dash connections, once the dash piece is off, you should be able to get to the hinges and unscrew them.
If you can't get it all the way apart, get a haynes manual, it should tell you how.
If it doesn't, call the parts department of a dealership and see if you can talk to a mechanic and pick his brain.
I'll see if I can find some pics for you dude.
