Removing the interior door panel is probably the only way.

Try maybe banging it from inside or have someone push it from the inside while you work the key from outside. If the actuator is broken...unfortunately our esteemed colleague was right, removing the interior panel is the only way.

I have the same problem when the temperature is below freezing it will not open. When standing at the rear hatch, and pressing the unlock button I do not hear the lock working. I took the interior panel off today and there was duct tape over the locking mechanism. Also found water leaking out of the Wiper motor housing.

There is a small emergency release inside behind a cover tin he shape of a guitar pick just a bit bigger you'll see a white plastic part inset a phillips into the white plastic part and turn it doesn't feel like it's doing anything and while you do that you pull the outside liftgate handle and viola
