My rear left door doesn't seem to lock with the rest of the doors...the little lock "button" on the top of the door panel goes down and up (though kinda loosely), but the door still opens as if it were unlocked when all the other doors are locked. Anyone seen this before or know what's wrong/how to fix it?
I have a left rear door lock giving me grief also. Mine locks an won't unlock unless I take the lock button off and pull hard several times with pliers. Eventually it unlocks. Me thinks they might be a fault witht the car! I'm lookin' for another.
OK, nevermind, it just fixed itself Good old Alfas
The lock "button" on the door still moves up and down freely, I don't think it's connected to the door's lock system, but at least the door locks and unlocks with the rest of the doors now when I turn the key.
I'm still not sure how to remove that door panel though - is it all clips? I can't find any screws.
you need to remove the cover on the door handle. this will reveal two phillips screw's. then remove the lock "button" the top of it lift's up to show the 4 or 5 mm allen key. then you need to Carefully pop the clip's round the edge of the panel swing out at the bottom and lift up.
