Megane 2001 passenger door doesn't unlock
I have repaired a broken left side passenger door handle with the help of this forum, very good information available here! I have replaced a broken little plastic plug with a 4mm bolt.
This worked for a few days for 100%, and it is still working, but I have a new problem now:
When the car is locked with the central door locking mechanism and is unlocked, the left passenger door cannot be opened from the outside. I have to open the door from the inside, and then I can use the outside door handle again. This will work also after closing and opening the door, it acts normal. But if the door is locked and unlocked again with the remote control, I have to open the door from the inside to unlock it manually.
Does someone recognize this problem? It took me a long time to fix the broken door handle (difficult and painful job.....), I don't want to do it all over again without knowing what to search for. Maybe a new lock will solve the problem, I am looking already for a used one.
The door is where my little boy sits in his chair, it must be possible at all time to open the door from the outside, for example in case of an emergency or car accident.
Thanks & bye,
