Renault Clio 2002 passenger door will lock but not unlock

Hi,

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.

Re: Renault Clio 2002 passenger door will lock but not unlock

I got the door panel off today and got access to the lock. I have tried spraying WD40 on anything I see moves but still no luck.

I can feel the lock doing something as the white box which has got the plug connecting moves of some kind as I can feel it when I hit the button on the remote. I disconnected the plug too and it never did anything so I know the connections are ok electrically.

When I push the latch up to the lock position the key will not unlock the door, it moves but does not move to the unlock position. I sat in the car and I could see the lock barrel not being able to go down. To unlock the door I pull the door Handel rod from inside and it opens fine.

I don't know if it could be the solenoid, so confused with it!!

It might be better to remove the lock from the door to test. This will allow you to test the lock barrel at the same to see if it works with the main lock out of the way.
Should be plenty on ebay if you need one.
