Passenger door won't open from outside or inside door lock actuator?

So...I installed upgraded speakers in the front doors of my 2011 X5. Have done this on a bunch of bimmers over the years; never had any problems. Doors worked fine for 3-4 days, but now my passenger door won't open from inside or out. The key unlocks and locks the door just fine. The door pin goes up and down as does the window. I called a locksmith, but they told me they have no way to "slim jim" it. There are some old threads out there, but nothing recent, and nothing recent specific to an e70. If anyone has had this problem, how did you solve it? Some of the old threads out there suggest it's impossible to do without destroying the door panel. Door panels can be had all day on ebay for about $100, but of course, none in my cinnamon/black color scheme.

Any help is appreciated.
