I have a 04 plate Mondeo ghia x with the rear nearside door

Resolved Question:

I have a 04 plate Mondeo ghia x with the rear nearside door jammed shut. The child lock is on and the inner and outside door handles are not releasing the mechanism. All the other locks are activating via the central locking / keyfob except this one.
Is there a quick fix. I've tried wd40 down the window seals and the usual coat hanger.All the fuses are ok

Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
The issue is caused by a failure of the door lock actuator inside of that door. This is not a easy fix and requires the door panel to be removed in order to replace. This will need to be done by a shop that has done this type of work before to prevent damage to the door panel.
