Locked out of BMW X5 2001, help?

Anyone know how to get into a deadlocked BMW X5 2001 e53? Door tumbler is broken and key fob is dead. I heard there is a trick involving the tail gate?

    Your best bet is to gently pry the drivers door open just enough to slide a coat hanger in and push the lock button.

      Thanks but there is no door lock on the passenger side. Only the driver's door.
