Re: Renault Scenic - Unable To Open Rear Door After Using Child Lock


you need to perservere my friend,, i had same prob with my megane...
child locks were on, door closed on daughters hand, when wife pulled outside handle, it snapped the "plunger" inside the door frame...!!

im quite slim in the arm/hand department so it was fairly easy for me to feel around inside the door frame when panel was removed...

basically, you need to feel from the point where the external handle comes into the door frame, then follow the connecting rod upwards towards the rear of the door..
you will feel a bar with a screw thread on it !! and its fitted with a plastic clip... this clip connects to another rod/plunger which activates/releases the door !!
you should be able to "flick" it down to release the door... then you can gain access to the fittings of the lock...
took me about an hour from start to finish...

hope this helps
