Still looking for ideas

re everything above - I have emptied half a can of WD40 onto/into/around the offending catch over the last few weeks and it still refuses to open.
Does the double wire that goes down into the drivers side catch (but not the nearside catch) have anything to do with opening the lock? Or is that something to do with the alarm??
It's been so long since I've seen the mechanism from the outside I've forgotten what it looks like but I seem to think there's some sort of pin I could maybe hacksaw through if I stuck a blade down between the door and the rubber seal on the body.
Getting desperate for ideas - please help!

espace jammed tailgate

hi - i have a similar problem - the lower handle on the tailgate is jammed - it will move back and forwards with force, but does not release the catches - any remedies, as the tailgate is jammed shut! it is also effecting the alarm, as the system beeps when you lock the car then goes off - i am sure this will rectify itself, as whn you lean on the tailgate, the beeps stop! thanks a million ben!
