It seems that over the xmas period my cars normally break lol, got away with it last year but not this year it would seem.

So this year my passenger door is jammed shut!!

Was all working fine until yesterday when i shut the door i couldnt open it again. Had to litterally rip the door card back so i could give a tug on the pins to try an open it, no matter what i did it wont open.

Im guessing the central locking mechanism is fooked cos its that that wont move enough for the lock to open.

Need to know if i can take off the central locking mechanism by just pulling back the door car or do i need to have the door open to do it?

Really need to get it done asap aswel or il end up having to go in the mrs corrolla everywhere when we go out as a family.....an fook that lol

happend to mine mate, take the card completley off, remove the plastic sheet, theres a horizontal bar which is a nightmare to get hold of lol, spray both ends of that with stupendous amounts of WD40 and rag backwards and forwards till it loosens off

Ok had another crack at the door today an it will not open no matter what i do. The lock seems to work fine now but the door will not open at all.

I think the only chance ive got is to angle grind the whole door off

Even if you chop/grind into the door etc, It will still be latched on.. So chopping it wont get you far either...

Without checking/seeing it myself i cant advise, Sorry...

The problem is getting to the latch... Because no matter what you do. The latched side isnt going to swing so you cant get access, or room to cut it... So you're going to struggle..

Best bets going to be grinding out the section around the latch, grind off the latch then get the door off an replace.

I may try rippin the whole catch piece off from inside an if that dont work the grinders out lol
