    central locking deadlocked! HELP!

    My offside rear door is deadlocked, cant open inside or outside, anybody come across this?
    Iv got to the wiring in the door hinge accessed via front door, and attempted to shock 12v up to the latch in an atempt to wake it up.. No good, iv tried banging in the area of the latch while pressing unlock, no good..
    Short of destroying the inner Panel to get at the latch is there anything I can do to just open the door so I can replace the latch unit?
    Thanks guys n gals!

    I understand its common, its a mk4 golf, iv done the nsr door for intermittently locking but I managed to do the job before it deadlocked! Anyway I can force it open without smashing the door to pieces?

    It probably the cable on the handle (too tight) You need to pull the handle out as if your opening the door and get a pick and get the cable off the handle. it should lock and unlock then! Then its a case of thaking out the handle and refitting it but with the cable slacker!

    Have you experienced this or done it yourself?

    Yeah i used to work in a bodyshop, used to get it all the time! If the cable is clipped into the handle too tight then it gives the lock the impression the handle is being pulled open when unlocking.

    [MENTION=506]mickstoke[/MENTION] im not sure I understand? Are we talking about the D shaped cable end that goes into the outer door handle? The door is deadlocked shut, will adjusting the outer handle cable release the door?

    If u release that cable it allows the door to lock and unlock then u should be able to open it from the inside so that you refit the cable in the outer handle!
