Door Problems

Ok, well the Rear Drivers Side door has decided to be a little ****!
It wont open.

I have played with the childlock too, but that makes no difference.

The rod or somethng has decided to fall off meaning the back door cant be unlocked because there is no snipper button either.
It should open from the inside handle regardless if its locked or not but it doesnt for some reason.

I cant get at the rods inside because the trim is in the way.

What can i do to open the door, preferably without breaking anything?

Matt

Re: Door Problems

Just curious as to how you played with childlock if the door won't open?
Sounds to me like it's on, which basically means you're screwed unfortunately.
I suggest you cut a hole, but keep it small and neat, and you might be able to glue it back up neatly, or cover it with some sort of decal.

Re: Door Problems

Whats stopping you from taking the door skin off to take a look? You may have to take the back seat out to do this, but it's better than drilling or breaking something.

Re: Door Problems

EL interior dellboy

Well its called childlock for a reason, im no child so
I got a peice of coathanger and slide it to where the little lock thing is, and played around and eventually mastered it and could move it up and down when i wanted.
I tryed both up and down and it didnt open.
So i came to the conclusion that its locked.

Re: Door Problems

You *might* be able to take the doorhandle and armrest off, and get enough flex to stick your hand in through the doorhandle hole. Don't blame me if you accidentally break something though!
