Re: Scenic Rear Door Wont lock. Can i do it manually??

I have just fixed the same fault on my 1999 espace. The wires to the lock go through a rubber boot between the door piller and the door. It is a common fault on the espace for the wires to break where they flex inside the rubber sleeve. I pulled the wires out as far as they would go, held them with a mole grip and soldered a short piece of wire on each break to bridge the gap. Problem solved. It is worth checking before going down the route of a new solenoid. In mine both wires were broken at the end nearest the door pillar. Hope this helps. regards, Ian
