Door Lock advise Megane 2

Hi All,

So last two days when I unlock my 2003 megane 2 all bar the drivers door will unlock, go around to the passenger side pull the interior handle door opens no problem. Great looks like I need a new lock but wait when I lock the car with the remote all doors including the drivers door lock. Just seemed to happen all of a sudden and no apparent lead up or signs of it happening since I got the car a month and a half ago.

Going to have to take it apart tonight and have a poke around but was hoping someone here might have had the same problem and be able to save me some time trouble shooting.

Thanks in advance !!!

Quick update

Had look while on a smoke break.

I opened the drivers door and set the latch with a screw driver, on puling the exterior handle the latch released. Closed the door and checked handle again and worked fine... Locked and unlocked the car with remote but drivers door wont open ( all other doors unlocking and opening without any problem )

Re: Door Lock advise Megane 2

Hmmm fixed kinda...

So the problem started occurring during a wet damp week here but over the weekend the sun came out and temps got back into the high 20's and what ya know it working perfect again. Only conclusion I can come to is it got damp and when the sun heated up the metal its dried out again.

Now I should be please right!!! hell no what kind of problems am i going to get in the fall when its wet wet wet and then 3 months of -15, ice and snow for the winter ????

hi


get door card off and check for damp, put some of those silica gel bags (the one's you get free with mail order stuff ) in there and spray some WD40 or similar, also grease the rods and oil mechanism whilst inside the door , it will make it easier for the mechanism to work in the cold.
