Hi everyone
My car got defected and is coming up for an inspection. The drivers side door has become very hard to open from the outside and impossible to open from the inside. What can I do to fix it up. If it can’t be adjusted where can I buy a new door mechanism.

Wreckers or someone parting out a project car from their back yard on Gumtree is probably your best bet if you want cheap. Some wreckers charge new prices for flogged out bits though, so do your research.

Whats actually broken? Hinges or latch assembly?

Hinges are an easy swap, aligning everything again can be a bit of a pain though. I wouldn't be bothered just replacing the pins.
A bit of googling gives me:

Latch assembly (its a LH though) https://www.ebay.com.au/p/21027107894 or a pair https://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-SUZUKI-SAMURAI-SJ413-LH-RH-DOOR-LOCKS-LATCHES-SIERRA-JIMNY-SET-OF-2-/324013792137
