This might help...
Have a look at your windscreen wiper blades....If they have a thin piece of metal running down each side of them, pull out one of the pieces of metal
Go to the door and pull the handle up...you will have to get on your knees to be able to see under the handle..there should be a gap(hole) where a
connecting rod - from the handle - pulls the lock actuator through the skin of the door.
Very(very) carefully slide the thin piece of metal from the wiper blade into that hole/gap and try to push the door snippet up(the internal hand
actuated lock) with the thin piece of metal. You will have to try and visualise where the bottom of the snippet is and by "trial and error" you can
usually push the snippet up from underneath it.
You can also try this method with coat hanger wire but be careful as the coat hanger wire will be too thick to fit into some cars.
Be patient with this method, it works well on the right car but can take a while if you haven't done it before.
NOTE .... This won't work on cars that have the internal door lock down near the window winder/switch...in that case, use a "slim jim".
On some of the suggestions on prying open the door with a wedge....be very careful as this can bend the whole door.
