hi,

i have recently purchased a 2003 mk6 fiesta, however, i have found out that the passenger door doesn't lock, with the key, or the remote or from the inside, my guessing is it is a seized door lock solenoid, which is on its way. The problem i have is in trying to remove the locking mechanism, i have some how managed to stop the outside handle from working, and the door doesnt catch on the latch any more can any one help me with trying to fix the handle at least, or a guide on how to remove and refit the door locking mechanism, i have been searching but cant find anything.

Many thanks in advance!!

I've never had one apart but I'm guessing its a cable that does the latch just make sure its not stuck and it moves ok if it does then the latch may be seized aswell just spray it with wd40 and move the mechanism with a screwdriver try free it off. Ps I've never don't anything with doors but that what i would try

Thank you for your reply, it seems as though there's no resistance in the handle, like a Siri g us missing so to speak?

There is a spring in the lock mechanism to hold the catch down might have snapped but never heard of one snap before first time for everything though
