Hi John, my dad had the same trouble with the offside rear door on his '94 Xantia SX/TD. I started to remove the interior trim panel of the door by working inside the car, but soon found out it was going to be tricky; so at this point i operated the central locking rapidly, lock/unlock/lock/unlock and it suddenly just unlocked itself!! Then i sprayed some WD-40 into the catch assembly as it appeared to be very dry and it has been fine ever since with no furher problems.
Hope it may help. Good luck, Rich.

Hi
You can also try pushing the door in to take the pressure off the lock while operating the central locking
works every time for me
