I've just repaired my drivers door lock which wasn't opening when using the outside handle.

The fault with mine was a mechanical one, but it was an easy fix.... The mechanism is slightly different depending on if you pull the inside handle or the outside one. If you dismantle the lock and inpect it, the motor at the top operates a white plastic latch, mine was slightly worn and needed smoothing off with some emery paper and re-greasing. If this latch is catching and won't return and drop down under the tension of its own spring then the unlock mechanism wont work.

Lock works fine now repair took about two hours. (and some degree of patience !)
