I have a problem with my B8 avant, the rear drivers side door will not open from either the inside or outside. I have managed to get the door card off and tried to open from inside but no luck, anyone any idea how I can get it open?

More than likely the door lock/latch unit will be going bad, if you have the door card off try giving it a tap with something and actuate the central locking.
Maybe even try searching for it on youtube, you may find more tips there.

You should be able to pull the wire to release the catch tbh, maybe get some pliers on it without breaking any strands & also pull & push the door at the same time to try & release the latch whilst pulling the wire.
