If you pull the passenger seat out through the driver's side, you can get the door panel off and access the actuation rods that way. Soak them down from the inside with WD-40 which is a solvent and will free up the gunked out grease. I would suspect another issue besides rust, but I don't live where it is rusty most of the time.
