I have an Espace III same problem, answer is to open the back door pull the drivers seat recline lever, lean forward and open the door from inside! - Only kidding, if you take off the door linning and remove the locking solenoid thingy, greese it up with lithium grease then reassemble it all, that should do it.

I did mine but had't got any grease so just cleaned it - lasted about 9 months now i'm back to rear door party tricks 'till i get around to doing all over but with the grease this time.
Currently in forgon's garage:
