    I have a 2002 Jag sedan and someone tried to open rear door at the exact moment that I clicked the remote to open. Now it's locked and jammed. Any suggestions?

    I suspect the child safety locks are engaged, and the original exterior door handles have broken (a common problem for '88 XJ6s). The trick, as I see it, is to get the door open so I can disable the child safety locks and remove the inner door panel so I can replace the exterior door handles with the improved after-market model. Which leaves me back at square 1: doors won't open.

    Maybe I can manipulate the linkage with a slim jim or something.

This is a child safetly feature. There should be a small lever on the inside of the door frame on the door itself. You will have to switch it back in order for the handles to function again.

I have a 1988 jaguar xj6 and the outside door handles dnt open


If you havent' already broken the door handles tugging on them, inside the door you will find a linkage with a tensioner adjustment. You need to tighten that linkage adjuster. You will find if you take off the inside door panel and pull the linkage manually the door retanier will actuate. The job is a PIA, and requires a couple of very long, very small box wrenches. Dont attempt to adjust the linkage without loosening the retaining nut, the linkage will shear right off, thus making the outer door handles permanently locked Good luck.

The two back doors for a jaguar xj6 1994 do not, open email afernadez730hotmail.com


If the doors will open from the outside, but do not open from the inside - the child safety switches are probably activated. Open the rear doors (from the outside) and slide the small levers next to the doors locks (on the edge of the doors) upwards.

Rear passenger side door will not open


Have you tried to open it from the back seat? If you have then you will have to take off the cover on the door and there should be a release button. Most covers are easily removed with a flat head screw driver - If your door requires a motor to operate than that is your problem. Hope this helps.

1988 jaguar and cannot open doors from outside


need to remove the interior door panels and check all the linkages. One of them is a brittle plastic linkage that is famous for breaking, and bits get caught up in the travel path of the door handle. I had taht issue, and rebult all mine with aftermarket plastic linkages, and the metal parts I pulled from junkyard cars. No way to fix it without removing the interior door panels, but that is thankfully a pretty easy job.

Rear passenger side door will not open


the problem would be the wiring on the door, possible a break in the wire, therefore the window and the central locking isnt working, possibly the earth wire is broken, open the front passenger door and u should see a sleeve connecting to the rear door, that is where the wiring to the door is, check ! also i would check the fuses. thanks
