Re: stuck shut door

I'm afraid this is a common problem on old cars. Happened on our old Scenic. There is a plaggy bit in the lock which fails, necessitating a visit to the scrappy for another lock.
It is indeed a ***** to do, without having to remove the door card with the door locked shut. Believe me, I sympathise, having suffered myself. Do a search, there is a post somewhere on here, on how to do it.
