I have got the lock off from the inside.
Having removed the door card, & disengaged the various rods from the lock & solenoid I removed the solenoid itself.
This held in by a 8mm bolt and 2 locating lugs.
Once this is out you can see more clearly. I do it with this in place next time as I know what I'm looking for.
I removed the door rubber to give a little extra movement.
Just above where the rod from the outside handle attaches to the lock, there is an oval hole.
I used a screwdriver in this hole to work the latch open (towards the outside of the door).
It's basically trial & error but I did it in about 5 mins.
You can then unscrew the lock from the outside. Undo the botton screw holding the window glass rail so you can squeeze the lock past it.
New lock being delivered Friday.
The solenoid seems serviceable, its the lock jammed.
And for a really cr@p coincidence, I have the same problem on the Pug, passenger side door. But that's much easier to get at.
