Rear Passenger Lock staying Locked

Happy New Year Folks,

I've got a problem with my central locking I think. When I press the button on the key to unlock the car, all the locks open except the rear passenger right hand side lock. I try and open the door from the outside, but the lock hasn't opened fully so can't open the door. I can open the door from the inside and then close and open it from the outside..I think the cold snap we had in mid December might have caused the mechanism to seize up? Or maybe something else. Is this an easy fix?
My car is an Alfa 156 2.0 JTS

Any help/replies appreciated.

As back door is probably not used as much as fronts, probably just as you suggest partially seized. Try squirting some WD40 or suchlike onto the mechanism......
