Passenger side door wont open!!!

right i have a 2005 scenic, and just the other day my wife tried to get into the car passenger side and she could not open the door front the out side handle, so i opened the door for her with the lever inside. i am not sure why this has happened, but nevertheless it is quite annoying, the door can be opened from outside if i use the key in the lock, but as soon as i turn the key to normal position it fails again, please help!!!!!

Re: Passenger side door wont open!!!

It sound like a problem on the mechanism, some have a small plastic bush where the link/rod from the lock goes into the mechanism, if the bush falls out it doesnt move far enough to unlock the mechanism.

You can try and check if that is the case you can refit a bush but it might be worth getting a complete mechanism from the scrapyard if you are not mechanically minded.
