Remove the door panel and spray down the locking mechanism with penetrating oil. Move the manual lock to get it freed up then lubricate with real oil. Replace door panel.

can you remove the door panel without the door being open? We have been crawling over from the front passenger side for 4 days and really sucks. Tried using key fob & key in door, but nothing.
