Question about Renault Clio
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.
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!

I have a 1.2 3 door 2002 clio with central locking.
The boot door does not lock when i use my key or key fob. Is there another way i can lock the boot?

Managed to open doors by taking off interior panel WD40 had washed grease away from lock- (big mistake-) I put stiff wire bent slightly at end in to back of lock and turned it a few times- which did the trick. Then greased into lock and worked it a few times until lock and solenoid worked freely.
(are we allowed to quote cross post liek this?)
