Can you still put the window down ? if you can ( or sometimes if you cant ) you still might be able to straighten a metal coat hanger and put a hook on the end . lift the rubber at bottom of the window and you should see the connecting wire from the door handle has come off or broke. use the coat hanger to pull the mechanism yourself. dont look at the inside of the handle,look where it leads to ( should be to the side of the door where it closes ....hope this helps

    hi suzette. is the door handle slack when you try to pull it ? this would be the wire off on the inside..if its still stiff try unlock/lock/unlock/lock on the central locking could just be jammed ? do you have a mobile machanic near you ? if its a simple fix he can be bought for a nice cuppa ?

Sliding door does not lock with button on front doors or keys

Your question is alittle vague, Ill do my best...If your van has central locking (all the doors lock when you lock the drivers door with a key) then I can easily say that the actuator for the sliding door lock has malfunctioned....However if you are implying that you cant lock the sliding door from the outside using a key then it is because the linkage inside the door has came apart (Both issues would cause the door not to lock with the power lock button) If it is the linkage this is easily fixed by removing the interior panel on the slider and reconnecting the metal rod to its rightful place, if it is the actuator you have to replace it by removing the interior panel..Good luck

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!
