Rear Door won't open - Any advice


On my '99 Scenic one of the rear doors won't open so I stripped out the door trim to have a look and found the linkage to the exterior handle is broken. Something inside the lock mechanisim seems to be broken as well as moving the linkage doesn't open the door.

I now need to remove the lock mechanisim, the problem I have is the child-lock was activated on the is door and I can't open it from the inside. Therefore I can't open the door at all to get at the bolts holding the door lock.

Does anyone have any idea on how I can get the door open?

i had the same prob on my 98 scenic..after you have stripped off the door panel break the plastic around the lock(sounds drastic but its not)...use a pair of pliers to bend the door skin opposite the lock..(so you can see what you are doing) use a long thin screwdriver and a torch to look at the bottom right of the lock..there will be a small bar you need to push this will release the lock....took me ages to do you will have to persivere...hope this helps
