This is a non-invasive way that got the driver's door open when it was jammed...

Here's the original post by Gas Turbine just in case it gets lost:


Thanks to the hulksters clue I have the door open.

Procedure as follows:-
1. open Window
2. grasp top of door and trim above handle
3. rock the door gently so the car moves on its springs whilst pulling gently on the inside handle - hey presto the door opens.
4. lubricate lock

Door now opens and closes superbly.
Unfortunately in my case the electic operation is now b***ered. Still I needed another trip to the dealers, unfortunately I did not want to be buying a new rear door lock.
