You should check out www.E38.org for some useful information on these cars. One of the links on that website says how when the door lock actuators break on these cars, the lock on the door will not unlock, and you will need to cut through the door panel to replace the actuator. I wouldn't know of any other way to get to replace it with the door closed.
