Default Door won't Open

Dear All,

The off-side rear door of my 2006 Prius will not open either from the inside or the outside. The remote fob locks and unlocks all of the other doors but makes no difference to the rear door. The door handles move both inside and out but the lock knob on the inside feels like it has a very strong spring preventing it from moving to the unlock position. Because the door won't open I can't remove the door trim to sort out the problem, the rear seat and wheel arch stops me from getting access to all of the trim. The only thing I can think of is to chop out the door trim, unlock the door and then replace whatever is faulty plus a new door trim. Does anyone have a better solution or experience of this problem.
Your suggestions and guidance are much appreciated.
