Renault Clio 2002 passenger door will lock but not unlock
I have recently bought a Renault Clio Extreme 2002. Really pleased with it apart from the minor fault when I bought it. The central locking works fine, I can push the remote and the car will lock - however if I then unlock it, the drivers door and the boot will unlock but the passenger door will not unlock, to get in I have to pull the handle of the passenger door inside the car. It then remains unlocked until I lock the car again.
I tried taking the door panel off today - took 4 screws out of bottom of door, took door handle off disconnected rod, but the door panel still seemed very very firm, I was worried about breaking it or whatever so I decided to put the screws back and seek some help here.
When I put the key in the door it will go in fine but when I try to turn it - it doesn't want to turn it feels almost as if I'm forcing it, whereas the drivers door turns fine and can unlock the door manually myself.
Thanks for ur help in advanced.
