    Exclamation Need help big time! Doors won't open!

    Hi Guys.
    So i took my exterior door handles of today to give them a respray. Followed a how to which i think was on here but can't remember. Anyway when i put the handles back on only the drivers door would open, the others were completely shut and the handles are stuck in the open position so have no effect! Even the handles inside don't work! Apparantly this has happened because i locked the car with the handles screwed into the open position! Has anybody else done this before?? Anybody got any tips or advise as to how I open the doors?? (No need for crowbar comments already contemplated that one haha!)
    Thanks in advance for any help, willing to try anything now because i've ran out of ideas!!

    This happened to me, TBH I cant remember exactly how I solved it, but I had to take the back door off to get the access I needed.

    Not sure if you've got access to the car but you should be able to hold the unlock button down on the fob to wind the windows down and use the interior handles to open the doors, remove door cards etc....

    If its the same as what happened to me the interior handles dont work. I shut and latched the doors with no handle fitted. You have to take the rear doors off to get access, cant remember what to lol, think it might be the hex to refit the handles.
