    Yeah I can hear the car unlocking but not sure on individual doors. Watched a video of people doing as you suggested but I tried with no luck

    How DIY enabled are you?

    You can often get the card layer inside tge door off even with door closed. Then fiddle with mechanism until door opens, then repair / replace. Uncomfortably tight with seats in, and they may even need to come out which takes you into dusconnecting batteey so airbags are safe to unplug, etc.

    Or if you take window all theway down and remove squeegie bits in slot it goes up in you may be able to see lock mechanism to poke at. If you can get the deadlocks off theres a decent chance of passing MOT.

    You'll need a good selection of Torx and triple-square fittings for a socket set as well. If ypu don't have those you're edging towards cost of a good value mechanic doing the work for you.
