Re: rear door will not open on clio

Not sure about your car but on 2005 ones if you get into the boot via the rear seats take a torch and a small flat blade screw driver or something like it, right at the bottom of the door in the middle there is a very small slot think it's set into a plastic trim you will need the torch to find it, by putting the blade through it and moving it about you can trip the door catch open the door then take the back off and hopefully find the problem.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
