Astra k rear door won't open

Recommended Posts

I've got as much of the panel away as I can....so much that I can slide my hand down one side and click the child lock on and off. I can't see where I can get my hand down anywhere else as the latch is the other side of the solenoid and is mounted. Are you sure (no offence intended) that the latch can be undone?16261794808613821373594344995469.thumb.jpg.7f341f33186d7d7666bcccf102947d4b.jpg

No, you probably wont be able to remove the latch mechanism but you could try pulling the lever up/down to release the latch.
It may be that the central locking servo is not operating the lever so try locking and unlocking to see what is occurring.

Worst case scenario is to destroy the plastic on the latch mechanism and force the latch into the release position with a bar but obviously that would necessitate replacement which if faulty then nothing lost

I have a long thin flat screwdriver and a hammer. I have the replacement part so I'll take a look at it and see where I need to aim the screwdriver to influence the latch. I'll try it 2morow and let you know. As soon as I get the door open i can install the replacement.
