    Hi everyone, I have an issue here, central locking seems working, even when you unlock all doors the button goes up a bit but not fully, I have no Idea what it is, all the rest of the car doors boot etc works fine, I cant remove the door card since the door is shut. any help is appreciated. Audi A6 1.8t 1998

    I have tried with: the key/control, central locking button on the door, and manual push up. with no joy.

    Perhaps an obvious question, but have you tried to open from the inside using the handle? On my car, this forces the pin in the open position.

    A few years ago this happened on my Corrado. I brought a new lock and air pipe from the dealer and asked them how they would replace the lock. They said that you could bang the door near the lock to see if that worked or they would try and remove the door card from the inside but that may well damage the door card. Before I got to change the lock the car battery went flat. I recharged the battery and when I unlocked the car both doors opened up. Might be worth a try.
