Mercedes Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you Today the latch / actuator fail in the door it is a nightmare as you have to sacrifice the door card to get access to break the latch.
This is an image of the rear latch this has to be broken down and then you can get the door open and start the easier rebuild of the door i would recommend buying a new one rather than a used one due to the same reason yours has failed if you need me just get back to me regards Gavin.
Morning no it is dead locked like i said they are a nightmare do you know the MOT station you are going to.
You have to smash the latch up to get the door open to access the torque bolts i was asking about the MOT station do you know them well enough for them to let it slip to give you more time.
I know it is the fact you can not open or close the door that it will fail hence you need to replace the latch Shame about the MOT tester they tend to be failed good mechanics and having a tester licence goes the their heads heads i was the UKs youngest ever MOT tester my claim to fame.
