When I use the key fob, I can her the locking mechanism in the rear door click, but when I pull the handle on the outside, neither the door nor the window will open. I also tried using the emergency handle on the inside of the door but it doesn't work either. I assume that the linkage is broken but I don't know how to get at it to check. Can someone help?
FP, thanks. It's not a power door - just manual. I could not open it at all. Finally figured out how to get the window off, and took the inside panel off (10mm wrench required for both window and door handle). I found that the linkage for the window had become disconnected and caused the door to stop working somehow. Anyway, it is working ok now. Thanks again.
I have a similar problem. When the temp is below about 5°C the rear door latch won't pop but window will. I open the rear window then close it again and door opens fine - go figure. I assume the mechanism could need some cleaning and adjustment.
