    Hi one of the kids put the rear window down yesterday and it then refused to go up.
    Managed to open the door card and put the window up with a little assistance .
    However when i put the door card on i forgot to allow the door pin to feed through the hole in the top part of the door card .
    I now cannot open the door any ideas ?????

    As the lock pin is stuck down behind the door panel this could be a tricky one. When you press the remote to unlock can you hear that door try to unlock ? If so try pulling the door handle as you press the remote you might be able to catch it before it locks again. If you can't hear the lock bouncing then not sure how you would get it open.

    I managed to prise the hole part on the top of the door (where the pin feeds through GENTLY) and then pull the pin .
    And there you have it open door !
    I managed to trap it when i replaced the door card on the other day .
    Pheww !
