If you open the rear doors you should see a plastic part by the actual latch , insert your key and turn this will disable the child lock , do it on both rear doors

Thanks Preee, that's something new I've learnt today, my old Mondeo just had latches in the rear doors to enable / disable the child locks. :)

Yeah its a great little feature, and nice and simple, but as you keep a car for longer and longer, its amazing how the small things disappear from our memory banks!

Stops the offenders getting away, but always remember to cuff them behind there backs, strap them in tightly, and ignore there winging, or in your case put them in with the dog. :P
