Unhappy Espace Tailgate Jammed shut

Unfortunately my tailgate is jammed shut and so there is no way I can get the inside rear trim off the tailgate.

This was an intermittant fault until 7 days ago so I did check out the lever and locking mechanism when the tailgate was open. Incidentially there is no exterior damage

I've read on the matrasport web site (Matra as you all know built all Espaces up to 2003) and there is a computer in the tailgate responsible for wipers, lights and locking. It would seem only a Renault dealer can read all the fault codes with their equipment but I would like to avoid them as they usually cost a fortune and can't fix the problem !!

Anybody got any ideas / had the same problem / found a solution
