I have spent some time fully dismantling two "faulty" rear locks and have devised a guaranteed method of unlocking a rear door from the inside.    Once the door card is removed my method takes less than 10mins and uses only a soldering iron and instrument screwdriver.  The door and lock remain undamaged and useable.  

 

Please see the attached PDFAttached File  CITROEN C5 - Opening an unopenable rear door PDF.pdf   902.16KB   8 downloads.

 

I can provide my more detailed analysis of the lock if anyone wants it.
