Question about Vauxhall Cars & Trucks
All other doors, boot and fuel filler cap lock and unlock, just the rear passenger door behind driver is permantely locked. any ideas.
Put your ear close to the door and activate the lock/unlock. If you hear click click there is a loose/disconected lever which is moving without activating the lock. If you hear nothing something is stuck or dead. Open door panel and clean system then check again. Might need replacing the unit in the door.

I had exactly the same problem and there are 2 ways of solving it. The first is to pay your Audi Service Centre £350-£550 to replace it for you and the second way is to do it yourself which will cost well under £100 (depending on ebay). Firstly check the Central Locking Pump to make sure the hoses haven't come off. This is located in the very back right hand corner of the boot so you will need to remove the carpet and internal trim and you will see a block of sponge. Carefully lift the top off this and you will see the pump sat inside it.
Actually there is a great set of photos online to help you and I will add the link for you at the end. If the hoses are still connected and not leaking it is very likely that the internal compressor wheel has shattered (quite a common fault). I believe it is possible to open the pump and replace this wheel (in fact there is one for sale on a very popular auction site at the moment) but my own preference was to simply buy a whole new pump and replace that (£16.00 + £8 p+p off the same auction site).
The most important thing for you to remember is that when you look to buy a replacement pump you need to find one with the EXACT same serial number. The one in the diagram shown is
8LO 862 257 N but I have a sneaky feeling yours might end in an A.
Anyway, I hope this is of some help and dont worry about the connections as both air connectors and all 3 electrical ones are different sizes and will only fit in one place each.

the little metal rod that goes from the key part of the door lock to the electrical switch has come off ,no doubt the plastic clip that holds it has broken

the problem lies in the drivers side operating switch for the central locking .this would involve removing the drivers side door handle and checking the switch mechanism thats built into the lock,havent done one o n this model only a opel astra ---but they are different from the opel although the car looks the same ,well similar pull it off have a go ,the key barrel must turn something so look for an internal switching or external switching and see if the spring is ok that returns the switch
