Espace tailgate fault

Sometimes my Espace (2002 model) tailgate will open, but more often it will not. The central locking works okay otherwise, and the side doors lock/unlock as they should. But the tailgate just will not budge. The last time it opened I tried lubricating the lock openings at the base of the tailgate with WD40, but this does not seem to have made any improvement. Anyone any ideas as to cause, cure etc please? or whether I can open it from the inside?
