Is the Laguna the most unreliable car ever? The CL on my drivers door has failed in the locked position. All of the other solonoids work but I can't get to this one with the flamin' door shut! Arrrgh!

Is there a magic fix I don't know about?

Pleeeeease tell me there is :crazy:

BTW the key won't budge the locks in either front door - should they? I'm guessing yes so have they just seized up through lack of use?

Also I can't budge the button on the inside of the door either if that's significant.

Thanks.

Keith.

I've managed to get the driver's door open by pulling the top lip of trim away from the door and pulling the "button" rod very hard with pliers. When the door is open the solenoid works but when it's shut it will lock but then fail to unlock.

Does anyone know how to replace the solenoid?

Took off the door trim and plastic sheet, still couln't get anywhere near the solenoid. What a triumph of crap design the Laguna is. It's put me off French cars for life. :steam:
