Question 98 UP Explorer - door lock and handle issues

Purchased a 1998 Ford UP Explorer XL today, it's got some issues with the doors.

The front drivers door, the lock is a bit iffy - you have to put the key in and wriggle around before it will be able to be unlocked.

Front passenger door will not open at all. Neither the interior or exterior handle will open it. When pushing and pulling the lock knob I can hear the lock in the door locking and unlocking.

Rear passenger side door, the exterior handle won't open it.

Anyone got any ideas on how to fix any of these (particularly the front passenger door as not being able to open it is extremely annoying, and I can't get into the door to fix it until I can open it!!!).
Also, anyone know where online I can order some replacement parts for these doors (e.g. locks, handles, etc.) if need be (Explorer parts are hard to find and when you do ridiculously prices here in Australia, so I'll be looking at ordering online from the USA)?
