Help! I'm locked out of my rear door. Heard a crunching/snapping sound when pulling the handle and now the door won't open at all. The handle moves as usual but doesn't do anything. Guess something's come adrift in the link between handle and catch. There is quite a lot of corrosion in the door which may have caused it? Anyway, I can't see a way to get at the mechanism, especially as my camper conversion blocks interior access to the bottom half of the door. Has anyone had this problem? Any bright suggestions? Thanks...

The normal way is to remove the door card, but as yours is blocked not sure how you would do it?

Ok thanks...I managed to do it after all. I just had enough space to remove the lining. The problem turned out to be that the plastic lever arm behind the handle has broken. Otherwise the mechanism works fine...so I can for now open the door from the inside!

hi
this happened to me 4 years ago. the hand lever only connects at the rh hinge end so after a while it snaps off from the rest of the handle..

solution is to get to the mechanism an run a piece of bike 1-2 mm brake cable from the lever internally down past the reg plate so it pops out externally from the bottom of the reg plate.. this means that the central locking still works and when you need to open the rear door you have to pull on the brake cable ..
