I had rear doors stuck on both my '83 4000 and the '87 4000 SQ.
On the 83 I had to take off the inner panel, and push the leaver
on the lock by hand. You can take off the panel if you remove parts
of the rear seat.
On the '87 I jerked up the lock button inside, just pulling it
did not do it, and then I could open the door from inside.
I would not saw off the door handle, as someone suggested,
the diecast piece inside of the handle will still be bolted
to the door, and that would limit access to the lock.
Taking off the door would not help either, it will damage the
lock pin/the lock/rear door post/rear side of door.

Good luck, Peter
