    Works the same way mate as when the door is open - there is enough room inside of the car between the trim to unscrew as normal and pop it off. You may have to bend it ever so slightly but not much.

    Even though there is no battery, can you not still open the door from the inside or is it double locked?

    It's double locked! Looks like just a bit of brute force is required then lol thanks for the advice

    is the outer skin of the door damaged? If it is, and its not repairable, I would just cut through it from the outside, access the locking mechanism and detach it manually.

    If the outer skin is fine, then yeah, unscrew everything as normal and then pry the edges away. Remove the B pillar trim if needed but on most cars (never tried it on the accord I must say), the trim can be removed relatively easily, its just more awkward.
