Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

My name is MIKE - Im sorry to see you have had a wait - Im happy to help you with this -

Can you tell me - is the door "lock" itself actually operating - can you see / hear it doing so ...therefore the latch is at fault - or is the lock itself not doing anything?

Rgds - MIKE.......................................


( Please type your reply here- When I receive it , I will get back to you asap thereafter - )

The door lock does not operate at all. It does not click like the rest of the door locks.

Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.
Hello again -

Thank you for your reply - Im sorry I missed it when it came in and I was off over the B/H period-

In that case then -re your reply, you will have to remove the door panel on the door - or have it removed - This is never easy when the door wont even open ... a tip is to remove the rear bench seat - that gives you more room and move the drivers seat right forward.. You have to get the panel off Im afraid -there is no other way. Once thats off - you can then manually trigger the latch mechanism, the door will then open -and you can then trace the cause of the fault.. Sometimes its obvious - a seized latch - broken cable and so on and you can see it straight away - but if not - a common cause is broken wires where they come through the link / weather rubber tube from the car door post to the door... especially if you can hear nothing operating at all. Of course there can be other causes but thats common -some things to check -

Let me know if you need anything more on this at all -

Best Rgds, MIKE.
