    Shouldn't be a big deal. Hop inside and crawl into the rear. You'll need a screwdriver and a panel tool. Take the passenger side panel off and you will be able to see what's not working. It is helpfull to have someone on the outside to operate the latch just to give you a visual on whats going on. There are rods and levers that open the latches. One of the rods is bent or could be a lever is disconnected. Take some pics while you are in there and post the info for others in need of the same help.

    More than likely a rod from your outside door handle has come undone, do like mentioned and your problem should be easily fixed!
