Rear door locked and won't open
2002 Citroen Saxo 1.1

Got the panel off. The wires have detached. Can feel a leaver through panel. I've moved it up and down. No joy at opening. Any further suggestions, welcome?

Would force off the inside panel,without breaking it of course,to gain access to mechanism,probably something,s popped off or latch faulty.

Thanks, but we have the removed the panel and even tried to take off the exterior door handle, but not sure how to remove the casing from the inside. There is very restricted space and also not sure how it is clipped on.

Try lifting the unlock button and moving the interior dr handle while someone pulls on the dr from the outside.

I think the rear outside door handles may be rivetted and need drilling to remove .May be plastic clip holding linkage to inside lock assembly .

We have taken off the inside panel. Inside door fittings too. Not much room to get hand in but lever can be moved a little but door doesn't open.
There may be a rod off the lock mechanism You need a light and a mirror if you cant see the problem
