Rear hatch lock on my Yukon won't unlatch on 2005 GMC Yukon

2005 yukon, rear hatch lock won't unlock. Anyway to open door manually?

Asked by for the 2005 GMC Yukon
You will need to remove the inside trim panel of the rear door in order manually open the rear hatch on your 2005 GMC Yukon.
Is the trim panel hard to remove? Do I need a special tool?
