When you press the key listen carefully go close to the door and see if you hear the mechanism working if it is then it might be dirt in the mechanism and yes may involve taking off the panel and cleaning up. If you have wd40 you can try with the straw to spray some in mid way up and wait a while then try the key again to see if it unlocks.

soaked it in wd40 and can hear motor working 

its just not engaging 

maybe something has come apart or broken

i was hoping there might be a secret way of getting the door open without having to butcher the door card

All done and yes the garage had to smash the lock to pieces and it’s cost me £300 😳

i did manage to get door card off with no damage even though I couldn’t open the door

but then I was defeated 

the annoying thing was if I had the door open then I could have done it no problem and saved myself a few quid

Happened on the rear passenger side door on mine a couple of months ago I managed to get the door card off without damaging it but couldn't work out how to open the door so went to the scrapyard and bought the inner door lock mechanism. By looking at that I worked out how to get the door open and replaced it all for £25.
