I checked my car and the door card should come off with it closed but you have to move the seats. Take the internal handle off and the 2 torx screws under the door pocket to take the card off,

I expect the motor has broken in some way, prob involve a trip to the scrappy to get a new one.
Its a fairly common problem well on forums at least, once the door card is off you should have a better idea.
ps the door car will come off but it is stuck with very very srong rubber black mastic you have to pull really hard from the bottom of the card use a plastic scraper not metal as it will mark the door card you need to pull it really hard but it will come off with a bit of effort .i took 4 off yesterday thats how i know jim
