i suspect that the lock has given out. remove the door card, without damaging it!!.( good luck with that ) and remove the central locking solenoid.This may have to be smashed off!! this will then expose the lock assembly. locate locking pin on clasp, flick it over and open door. buy new lock and solenoid and refit. i hope this helps!!!
