X5 Door locked shut- In & Out handle don't open door

My 2006 X5's driver side rear door will not open from either the inside handle or the outside handle. The window operates fine from either its door switch, the drivers master switch, or the key. The lock pin engages from the key, central locking, and the driver master switch. The pin will go both up or down. I don't have kids so I don't even know where the child safety locks are, so it's a slim possibility it was engaged.

From reading one of the more famous threads, it looks like it is probably the carrier. My problem is, if it is the carrier, how to get to it if the door is shut and cannot be opened to access the trim and later the door panel.

How do I get the door open (if it is the carrier).

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
