Renault Clio Rear Door Lock Fault

Child locks were on for a few years - everything worked fine ( i.e. doors opened from outside ok ) - removed the child locks but now both doors are locked closed - cant be opened from inside or out !!! - I have stripped off one of the door panels and can get to the locking mechanism but still cant release the lock in order to open the door. All the linkages are connected ok and I have removed the central locking motor ( which doesn't have deadlocking ) so the only thing that can still be stopping it is the "child lock" lever but I can't see what I can release from within the door to open it. ( I have read about someone else with the same problem - but not found a solution ) hope you can help. Cheers, Paul. back drivers side door will not unlock or open atal.managed to get panel off, but cant get any futher.had a screw driver and hammer to it but nothings working,it will not unlock.also key fob isnt working either,got no central locking atal,only fron the button by the gear stick.any more suggestions??

SOURCE: Renault Clio Rear Door Lock Fault

It has nothing to do with the "child lock" It is a know problem in this car, they tend to get caught in lock. Only thing to do, is to take of the panel then the outside handle, and through that hole destroy the plastic covering the lock, a large screwdriver and hammer will do! Then you can release the lock, while you pull the inside release handle. Buy new!

SOURCE: renault key fob doesnt work

Hi.
I have a clio II, 2001, i have the same problem and i fixed it.
Don't know if will work for you but here it goes:

1 - no key in ingnition
2 - press the unlock button in console off the car for about 10 seconds(dont let go)
3 - it should work the central doors one time and then 2 times( hear)
4 - press the remote a few times until it starts working

It worked for me hope the same for you.
Please tell me if it worked and pass the message.

Good luck

SOURCE: renault clio 05 interior light bulb gone . It

remove it from the car, drilla largish hole in the plastic behind the catch, and use a screw driver to unclip it. it takes a bit of effort.

once you get it off trim down the lug for the next time so it comes out easier.

SOURCE: How do you reset the key fob on a renault clio 1.2

The keyfob should not need reseting! normally you put the new batteries in and it should just work.

If the fob is not working then it may be broken.

I have a renault megane 1.4 16v car and the drivers side rear door will not open from inside or outside


Normally the outside door handle mechanism is the cause of the problem a small bit of plastic that links itself to the door lock, but for the door not opening from the inside I can only presume that you have the child safety lock switch activated, the only way to open up this door is to remove the bottom part of the seat and then removing the door panel.

I am unable to operate the lock from the outside


Hi
Can you still open the door from inside? if so then most likely the metal bar that connects the door lock to the mechanism has come off, you will have to remove the interior "door trim/ door card" so you can see on the inside of the door, sometimes it is just a small plastic gromit that cracks and fall's into the bottom of the inside of the door. these are about £4 each from renault and it's an easy job to do your self.

Is the key stiff in the lock? or is the lock just spinning? if it is stiff then most likely the lock is at fault if the lock just spins round and does not open the door then the fault is more likely the mechanism inside the door or the forementioned gromit.

If you need any help with the door trim let me know and i will talk you through it. it's fairly easy even for a novice.
Regards
Dan
