I havent done it myself but I read where taking off the rear bumper will give you access to the internals of the locking mechanism from below

You need to take off the inner door skin on the back door... Its not super easy to do but it is doable.. Then you will be able to see whats up with the Mechanism..

For the record.. Taking off the bumper will not give you access to the latch ..Inside the door is the only way to get to it..

If you have any problem ...Post back..
