    I'd appreciate any advice
    My central locking works on all doors except one
    You can hear the mechanism trying but the manual locking button won't rise

    I pull the handle and it rises but wont stay up however hard I try to grip it
    I cant open the door to remove the cover etc.
    Is there any way to open the door without damaging the cover
    Thanks in advance for any advice

    I feel your pain. I had the same problem. The electric deadlock has stuck on. If you search the forum I should find I cured it by very carefully drilling a small hole exactly over the location of a torx screw which when loosened allows the locking arm to detach , thus allowing door to open.
    I got new locking module for about 25 quid from eBay which has worked ever since (came from Lithuania iirc). So before doing job get a new module and a selection of torx drivers down to t5 including t8 iirc.

    Hi
    the rear passenger door is firmly closed/locked and no torx screw is visible
    Once I have the door open I believe I can manage as I have all the necessary tools
    Could you be more precise as to where I should drill the hole?
    Maybe a photo or some kind of illustration
    My main problem is to get the door open as it's necessary for the MOT
    Thanks
