Manual Opening Outflow Valve Airbus 320

Hello;

Can you manually open the outflow valve from the outside of an Airbus 320? Thank you.

No but you can manually wind the equipment cooling valves open and shut from the outside.

They look a tiny bit like outflow valves I suppose

If this is about overpressure, the cargo doors do have vent flaps.
