Repost - Can anyone actually help

Where do I start?? Well....

M reg Laguna first, The drivers door will not open from the out side, I can zap it with the key and the lock does go up and down and it also does when I use the key in the door but will not open with the out side handle (it does open from the inside as well)
Secondly the boot has stopped locking when I zap the car or when pressing the internal door lock button, I have checked the connection and tried a new lock but still no joy.

X reg Laguna Alise (estate)
Same as the drivers door on the M reg but this time it is the passenger side which does not work.
Secondly when zapping the car with the key or pressing the internal door lock, The locks go down then shoots back up again, So I have to lock the car manually at the moment, There is a hole (looks like a screwdriver) where someone has tried breaking in, just to the left of the drivers door lock.

Any Ideas?? Thanks Richard!!

Re-the X reg,I think you have answered your own question on this one.It sounds like someone has tried to break into the car and has damaged the lock mechanism.The central locking impactor tries to pull the lock,but can't and jumps back up.I'm sure that if you remove the door card then all will become clear.

The M-reg sounds like the outside handle is broken.If the door locks and unlocks on the central locking and you can open it from inside,then the outer handle has to be at fault.The boot is eithe ra broken wire into the tailgate for the impactor,or the impactor is faulty.You need to take the trim off and see if you have a feed to the inpactor when the central locking is operated.It could be just seized up.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
