You need to remove trim panel from rear door. Never done this with door closed. Could be difficult. So you will have to struggle on? As this is the only way to get the door open.
1) remove swing out window latch (if equipped)
2) remove window garnish retaining screws
3) pry the molding from the door in the area of the retainers and remove the molding from the door
4) remove the door trim panel retaining screws
5) remove the trim panel
you should now be able to gain access to the door handle mechanism and open the door.
