Megane - rear door won't open!

Hi guys,
Hope someone can help. Car had MOT yesterday and failed because rear drivers side door will not open from outside (or inside for that matter!) Got the door card off but nothing we are doing to it making any difference. Not bothered about repairing it as such...just need it so it open to pass the MOT re-test monday.....HELP!!!

Re: Megane - rear door won't open!

I've just had the same problem with my Mk 1 Megane. If the child lock is set then you may be able to move the lever by sliding something flexible past the door seal in the area of the child switch, it worked for me using a piece cut from a plastic milk container. this done, hopefully the door will now open from inside. The interior door panel is not difficult to remove after the adhesive mastic has been cut through, this goes all the way along the bottom of the panel and almost up to the top on both sides. The door is opened via a cable from the interior handle and on mine worked fine; the exterior handle, however, is connected via a silly little plastic pin about 1cm long which in my case had lost part of its end and therefore been allowed to pull out. Having fiddled about trying to reinsert it, it repeatedly came out again. I replaced it with a small metal bolt ... seems fine now ... what a stupid little item to cause so much trouble!
