    Default Rear Door won't open, how do fix?

    Hi rear door has never open since I got car. Now failed MOT for this.
    2003 5 door SRI with manual rear windows.

    All the other doors and boot work fine.

    Managed to remove door card and tried cleaning the contacts of the solenoid, at the hinge. None of the rods move and have tried opening from inside and out.

    Bought new door switch/lock, when I pluged into my existing loom, it moves the rods as they should.

    With the door still locked, how do I take off the switch or open the door?

    Need quick answer, to take back for MOT

    Any suggestions please

    The pin won't raise at all. I have the complete door card off now but lock still engaged and does not want to budge, either from the external or internal handle.

    I don't want to burst open the door

    Is there another way?

    If I've understood you the original lock/barrel is not engaging at all when you try and open it BUT the replacement works as it should?...Can you not disconnect the original and connect the new(I know you have already) also temporarily connect the new to the mechanics of the door internals?....maybe open it ?...

    By connecting the electrics to the new parts, I have established that the electric signal is getting to the lock. My issue is the lock stops the door from opening and normally the lock comes off by the 3 bolts which are accessed from the cpost.

    I am desparate for a solution where either I can remove the lock or open the door somehow.

    Any suggestions

    If the lock will not function even with known good motor, cables, etc then that would suggest either a physical failure within the lock mech itself (unlikely, but not impossible) or the deadlock system is still engaged.
    However that said, it is worth confirming that with everything in place and the locks all opened from the driver's door control, is there any function at all from the problem door's outside handle? Outside handle, to remove childlock as being a problem.

    If not, it may take some manual operation of the cables, etc inside the door to achieve everything in the 'unlocked' position - you may want to take the card off the opposite door and compare with something that is actually working.

    The manual operation suggestion worked today. Managed to open the door at last!

    I could change the lock now, but it seems very fiddliy, so I will leave it for another day.

    The door now locks and unlocks manually, using the door button. that will get me through the MOT.

    Thanks to those would answered my call for help.

    Much appreciated
