You might want to try a ratcheting cargo strap, one hook in the door, the other end under the front seat frame or across the van to another secure point. 

Obviously, dont ratchet it down TOO tight. 

You might be able to work the ratchet from the front passenger side, and in an emergency you can cut it with a knife.

On my van with the sliding side door, the latch mechanism has a screw that backs out occasionally, and then the outside handle wont work. I just re-tighten the screw and all is well.

The strap is good idea because sometimes I'll need to use that door. Thanks.

I'm using two on the rear cargo rack, so I'll need to head to WM and get a couple more.
