    sounds like the cable has come off or snapped you will have to take the door card off and have a look but re check the child lock 1st fella

    The child lock was the 1st thing I checked ..... so I reckon it must be the cable ... is it an easy job to do once I have the door card off.

    I think the cable is similar to a push bike brake cable, with a "nipple" to hold it in place, I changed my door cards easy enough, so it's no big drama.

    if you have windy up rear windows trying to get the winder off is a bit of a pain as there is a horseshoe shape clip on the inside of the winder i always use a cloth and wiggle it round the winder to unclip it

    I've been to dealers, cable was £4.27 ..... only problem is that it has to be ordered in, Get it Thursday ...... I popped into the scappys on way back to see if they had 1 ..... the guy said yes I have 1 you want it for £10..... told him what it costs from the dealers and he just said, " well I do have over heads" ....
    So Im just waiting to Thursday, Im not that desperate to get ripped off.
