    Angry Passenger Door Locked Wont Open!

    Hi All,

    Im gonna need some help with this one.. so as much advice in very simple terms would be great

    two weeks ago now, i came off the road after hitting black ice. done some damage to the car, front passenger door and wing, raditator,& bumper took the impact.

    Picked up another Front passenger door from a Salvage yard same colour but from a Sxi model and mine is a 2.0 Dti LS. anyhow ive fitted the door, the electrics work.. (Window, Mirror, Internal door panel buttons - lock-boot release). But.............

    here's the problem. the central locking on my key fob does all the doors except for this one. The door is closed, and totally locked PERIOD! i can't open it from the inside or outside its pretty much dead locked. I cant open the door to check the pins or even take the panel off. ive pulled the Pin up and pushed it back down again...and....Nothing!

    Is there a way to get the door open another way? some sort of secret release or something from inside? what can i do?
    i cant take the panel off as i think the screws are at the bottom of the door trim (the door is closed so cant get to it), cant open it from the outside. anyone have any idea's at all?
    i really need to get this thing open its driving me nuts! would the wiring be completley different on the Sxi Door (which looks identical and from the same model year) to the DTi?

    I need suggestions or a fix to first be able to get into the door to open it.
    then i need a fix so it doesnt happen again?

    Thanks in advance..

    Street

    Hi guys thanks for the reply.. so the door module needs to be replaced, how do i get the door card off when its closed and locked shut? isnt the screws for the door card underneath the door panel? (which i cant get to with the door being closed).
    anyone have a guide or distruction manual?

    I would start by taking the passenger seat out , at least then you can get at the panel to get it off .

    Passenger seat is only 3 bolts (including the seatbelt) both at the back end in the rear seat area. Really tight fitting bolts though because they use loctite or something like that on them, so use a long breaker bar and a quality T45 torx (from memory) - you don't want to add to your problems by ruining the head on the Torx bolts.

    You need to program the door module fella (tech2) (unless you are using your old module), they are coded to the car and you will need the original security code from the donor car to gain access to it.
