This doesn’t look like it’s going to be much fun. When I bought the car four years ago it came with a bunch of minor problems one of which was that one of the rear doors wouldn’t open from either side. This is an MoT failure here in the UK. This fault self cleared before I got to deal with it and being a bit of a lazy baggage, I never got around to investigating the cause of the problem. The central locking has never worked on this door and if I needed to lock it, I did it manually.
Today, with absolute precision timing as the current MoT just expired, the problem has returned. Both handles operate but neither opens the door.
I know I have to remove the door card which is easy to do if you can open the door. Looks next to impossible to do without causing damage with the door closed.
Anyone else had this problem and if so, any tips on getting at the lock?
