Re: Door not locking

If you trip the catch with a screwdriver and then pull the exterior handle, does the catch spring open ok.??

The catch should lock when half tripped then again when fully tripped.

If it does, it may be that the striker plate on the body needs adjusting.

One of the forum sponsors is a renault breaker. Look for Renparts on the home page.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
