    Hello
    My first post, hope I'm in the right section. My passenger side rear door has a problem whereas once the car is locked using the key fob, it won't open from the outside, only the inside. This is the side I have my child's car seat so it's a bit of a nuisance and needed to be sorted. I must also mention that sometimes the front passenger door has this same problem but that's only happened on a few occasions.

    I left the car to the garage today for service and asked him to look at it and he said the whole lock/mechanism needs replacing. He said he can order from Audi or I can source one for him to fit.

    I spoke to a car spares place today and I just want to make sure I'm being supplied the correct one. I'm a little confused about the the different years of A3's and what bracket mine falls under. I think it's 2008-2010. The car was manufactured July 2008, I've attached a photo to confirm. The car spares place said they had one for an 2008 but I'm not sure if he means the 2003-2008 version and is this likely to be the same?
