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: Unable to open rear nearside door

Is your car door set up to override the lock mechanism if the door handle is pulled?

If it is not set to override, is your door still locked when you use the handle?

If the door is unlocked, is your door latch in the open position when you test the handle?

If open, close the door latch (not the door, just the latch) and pull the handle to see if this releases.

If it doesn't, check to see if all the rods connecting to the latch mechanism and the handles are all in working order

Doors locks


I had the same problem. I think it is due to wearing of the internal part of the door mechanism. The handle on the inside of the door will open it. I removed the door inside panel and can see the mechanism but I cannot figure out how to remove it just yet. The window slide rail is in the way. The mechanism is connected with four linkages, the top lock plunger, the door handle rod, the door key rod and the solenoid that actuates the whole thing. The solenoid is pulling but it can't pull hard enough to overcome what is worn. The key also does not overcome it. The door handle will.

Hope that helps........

Toyota door lock


Hi John, If the latching mechanism is in the locked position, does it open when either of the handles are pulled? If it is not opening you may need clean and service the linkages and the latching mechanism or replace the latch. The locking mechanism inside the latch is is an off center sort of horse shoe shape. If it is closed you will see a bar which will be in an almost vertical position, and it should release when either of the door handles is operated. If it is failing to lock, (which I am suspecting), the latch will be at an angle of about fifty degrees. If that is the case, using a Philips (star screw driver) push the latch back to find out if it is latching. If it does, use either of the handles to release it again. If it fails to hold in the closed position, the linkages from the release handles may be fouled, damaged or disconnected. If everything is correct in those areas, the latch may need replacement. Check that first, let me know how you get on and if we need to go further and carry out a replacement, which will mean removing the door panel, and the mechanism let me know so we can go through it together. Regards John

Escort 55 van rear door lock wont unlock with key


I assume you are referring to the tailgate door, so what likely happened is that either the door lock has something in it like a broken key, or dirt, or rust, etc. or perhaps the mechanism has failed.
Understand these parts are made as cheaply as possible, and are easy to break.
You may need to remove the riveted cover to look inside, and you may find a plastic clip broken, or the lock mechanism spoiled, or something else.
You do not need to re-rivet the cover, unless you have a pop-rivet tool.
You can also find some small screws that will reattach the cover. God bless your efforts.

I bought a Silver Spur ' as seen ' The rear nearside door won't open. The chrome knob inside the car is not connected to anything and the inside and outside hanles pull OK but don't do...


The door may be able to be opened with a "slim jim" or similar device. To do this you need to know the mechanical details inside the door. Opening up the other rear door sounds drastic but it might help. If you can get it open then it should not be closed until it is fixed.

One way many car doors can be opened is to remove anything that is in the way of removing the inside door cover such as the bench seat and then remove the door cover. The rods and levers, etc can then be manipulated to open the door.

I hope this helps.

The rear latch/handle on our ford freestar 2005 came off in my hand. it looks fine. I can;.t open the rear latch now. I got inside the van and removed the little plastic cap/tab the sits directly behind...


Here's how I repaired mine. Go inside and remove the plastic 2" square plastic cover. By pushing on the lever inside this area, the latch will release. Push on the door at the same time, when the latch is pushed. With the door open, remove all four screws from the plastic panel. Now pry carefully the big plastic panel off the door. There are plastic snaps holding this on, all around the edges. Now there is another metal cover over the latch mechanism under this panel. Remove this. You now can see into the latch area and put the handle back into the slot where it came out of. You'll see that the ends of the handle can be put back on the round bar, but to hold them in place, I attached 2 nylon ties on one end. You can also purchase a metal push on retainer from the local hardware store. Mine has been repaired for 8 months and had no trouble. Ford used no retainer on these handles and after prolonged use, they bend and the handle can be pulled off. A twenty minute job. Your wife can even do it.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Problem - Jammed rear passenger door - took off door skin but their is metal covering the problem area (where the mechanism is) - can't get at it. How would you go about fixing...


Hope you mean that you removed the inner cover....Generally the most common cause of latch being stuck is that the solenoid that operates the door lock gets jammed. remove the arm linkage that connects the solenoid to the lock and try moving the levers by hand. (you need to reach up into the door to do that even with the door open...its not really easy but is do-able) Most times it is easier to work inside with the window up.
