I've tried fiddling with the lock and lever (inside & out) to get the door open, and also pressing the unlock many times on both the remote and the doors.
The Passenger side sounds like it's trying to catch the cable but that something has slipped out.
I'm not sure what Island you are on? But would say that any automobile association (or crim) should have the tools and knowhow to unlock, your locked doors. I seriously doubt you would be able to get the panel off far enough to gain access without opening the door. I can almost guarantee you that the sound you hear is not the cable slipping out, but the motor just failing to fully activate the actuator.
