unfortunately the door panel will need to come off for the door to be mechanically unlocked / opened
this is very difficult with the door closed and can cause damage to the interior panel. You would be strongly advised to use a BMW dealer or BMW specialist for this as they will know how the door is affixed and can do it with the least damage. If you need a non dealer shop to save $ check out www.bimmershops.com or www.bimrs.org for options.
