Hi Tom,it has been intermittent for some time,on occasions it would not lock with the remote,but could be locked from inside.

Sounds like the locking piston may have siezed, if you take it to a garage, they may well have to take off the panel, get to the locks and spray some WD40 in there, let it settle and then try to open the door.

Never done it so I couldnt advise step by step, but if you are confident on removing the panels, then give it a go! could save you a few bob!
