Drivers door locked, closed & wont open

Hi There

New to the forum but desperate for some advice

My sister's Mine One D has a problem with the drivers door.

The door is closed and will not unlock. We've tried pulling the lock up but joy. It is solid!

Won't unlock with the key either.

Won't open from the inside or outside or with the switch on the dash

So, how on earth do we open the door!?

We assume the actuator is at fault, but to replace we seem to need the door open,

At the moment the drivers seat is out and the door card is off.

Any help would be appreciated!

PS. Apologies if this has been posted/answered already but I couldn't find this exact problem

Thanks in advance

Mike
