The door catch/lock mechanism on the MX5 is liable to do this occasionally - if you keep trying to unlock it, it will open eventually (I manually pop the internal lock whilst opening the outer handle if that makes sense).

Once it's open though, you pretty much need to open up that door and replace the lock mechanism.

Hope this helps,
Sherwin

Door wont lock..


The solenoid that operates that lock is frozen, probably from corrosion, or some linkage is rusted.

Look for any removable plastic plugs on the door edge, remove them, and spray a penetrating lubricant through them.
If the access is large enough, sue a flashlight to peer in to see if you can recognize the mechanism at fault.

Keep the lubridant quantity reasonable since the stuff might contaminate speakers and other things that don't like petroleum distillates.

Spray a little; try the lock, repeat.
Sometimes, you get lucky.
