Stuck rear door on T Reg Clio

I've got my hands on a T Reg Clio to do up with the intention of selling...
It's coming up for M.O.T however the rear door is locked shut and won't open from the inside or outside.

There is very limited access to the locking mechanism and latch, however the central locking solenoid seems to work fine- it just has no effect on the door latch.

So does anyone have any ideas how to go about opening it? I have attempted removing the door by taking out the door pins but that just results in it dangling and doesn't really help with accessing anything


PS- Was kind of stuck with what category to put this in? My Apologies.

Re: Stuck rear door on T Reg Clio

I had similar on a Ford Scorpio, it was dirty plug to the lock motor so it wouldn't run. Fortunately was operable from inside. Sounds like yours could be stuck in double-lock mode? Hence interior handle won't work either. (?)

Need to get access to lock motor to find out what's going on.
