disco rear door

Wife came home from shopping - not amused had to pile it on back seat as
rear door won't open. Tried locking/unlocking and also from inside of car
and still won't open. Any ideas? Disco 300 Tdi 1998.

Cheers

Graham

Hold the key over in the unlock position while trying the handle. It
will probably open....

Re: disco rear door

Is the door handle all floppy? If so, prise the LR logo out from the
door handle cover and use a screwdriver to push the workings back into
place ... common problem

Re: disco rear door

I had a similar problem. In my case we climbed inside and removed the door
panel to access the locking mechanism. Then simply cleaned and oiled it and
packed with grease. Working OK for time being.

Hope this is useful?

I did this as well.
Put the door panel back on, lock mechanism failed, took door panel off it
worked.
Where is the sensor to detect if the door panel is on or not ?? :)

Re: disco rear door

I found no door sensor. I have a 94/95 300 TDi once I had loosened the lock
and replaced the panel all was well. I do once a month now pop open the
panel and oil/grease just to make sure!!

Re: disco rear door

Careful with that idea ... the oil and grease will attract dust/dirt and
speed up the recurrence of the problem. Use a proprietary lock oil if
you want to use anything at all.

Re: disco rear door

I do have a special lubricant, ooooer, which has PTFE particles. I use it in
my radio control boats etc, would that be ok?
