The inside panel would have to be partially or completely removed to access the lock linkage or get another key.

There should be one for each side, and they should be pulled to the canter to release the latches, or if only one in the center it will probably need to be lifted. If the clips are broken and not attached to the latch, then the latch release will have to be released at the latch itself. If the key is the issue then check with the dealer for a replacement.
