First off, you said door wont open. Will it not open from inside or outside as well? Usually it wont open from outside, but it will from inside or the opposite. Bump the door lightly inside or outside with hand, listen for rattle. If you hear a rattle, you have a loose lock rod in the door.
You can access lock assembly by carefully removing the inner door panel. After doing so you will find the locking assembly rods. You will more than likely find one out of place. Reinstall rod and reinstall panel, Done.

SOURCE: passanger door wont open!

The rod that connect the latch to the handle has become disconnected. the door panel needs to come off. You should see a rod hanging helplessly away from the actual latch mechanism. Using the point that the rod is still attached to as a center point... rotate the rod and look for the plastic connector for the rod to reconnect. This will be a small plastic part with a clip that secures the rod in the anchor point.

Sounds like you have a blend door that either the actuator has gone bad or the door is stuck. There is a chance that the dash will need to be removed to access the heater box.

1996 BMW 740 il the front passanger side door is closed, lock broke and don't know how to get panel off,

If you can't get the door open then you can't get the panel off its as simple as that, there are screws under the door card that need to be removed to gain access to the inner door workings, without getting the door open you would have to remove the wing to gain access to the hinge bolts & remove the whole door from the vehicle, then you may still have problems with the door having its mechanism locked around the door frames pin or loop

How do I get access to the rear passanger side

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
