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.

    Thanks for your reply.



    You are quite correct, I had to strip down both door panels ( a couple of months ago) and brake into the lock mechanisms from inside in order to open the doors. 2 new mechanisms were needed. All down to crappy plastic bits within the assembly itself. Guy at Renault parts said they sell loads of them. Very poor design. Again, thanks for offering your feedback.

    my problem is very similar.. the dammed car won't lock with the key and the zapper is knackered.( the one on the keyfob) . only the boot lock works! .. i am having to lock the car from the inside ( with the use of a stick reaching thru the boot and striking the switch at the gear stick consul ) ) and then locking the bootlid .. looks a bit dodgy when u are in the shopping centre car park .. apparently it is an expensive fix ? .. the car

    is only worth between £7-800 ..looks like the stick option is going 2 b around for a while ..

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!

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.

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.

1997 Geo Metro rear door won't open!


I have the same car, same problem. I've still not been able to fix it, despite taking the inside panels off the rear doors, checking the rods were seated, applying WD-40 to the lock mechanisms, and manually working the mechanism. Child locks are not engaged, but I tried putting them on and off too. Just won't open.

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
