i have little bit of a problem here. The outside door handle is broken, and we have child lock enabled so its not possible to open it from the inside. Is there any kind of solution out there? Or does the car have to be taken to the shop?
Work with it to where you can get to the link with a pair of needle nose plier or fingers and push down on the link... Just be sure the door is unlocked first... after you open the door, flip the kiddie lock so you can use the interior handle if needed.
Same problem here - I usually try one of the door handles to see that I really locked my car.
This time I tried it and something snapped, the handle dangles with half usual resistance.
So door opened from inside but not outside.
Of course being smart I tried to see if something else was wrong, and switched the child lock on...
Now I'm stuck...
sbr711: can you elaborate a little? get to the link from inside or outside? perhaps a pic?
