Trimark lock failure-how to open door?

Hello everyone,
Just had the Trimark lock failure, since I have a class C we were not locked in or out just had to climb in and out of front doors all weekend. Lock broke with door closed of course and after removing back plate and finding broken part I still can't get door open to remove lock set. Dead bolt in not engaged and I can push latch out of way but door remains "locked shut" I can't see what is holding it shut. I have not decided whether to replace with another crap Trimark of go Bauer EM which seems to be the only two options. Thanks in advance for any help.

Can you elaborate more on what part you found broken? The rotor (the part that rotates around the door jamb post) is released by a rod that is held by a locknut. If you got the back plate removed, you will see that it still attached. Pull the handle towards the hinged side of the door, and it should release the rotor. Once it releases and you are able to open the door, you will see a black plastic tab on the door edge that needs to be removed and then you will see the lock nut that needs to be removed to get the backplate completely off. You will need a thin walled 7/16 socket to get the nut off. Good luck.
