Re: Door Locks on Mk II Clio

It sounds like the locks have seized internally to me,especially the tailgate one.I'd try and spray some penetrating oil into them and leaving it to soak for a while and then try the key again,repeating this process until the locks are free should sort it.The tumblers in the locks seize due to lack of use thanks to the remote locking,periodically greasing the barrels will stop it happening.
