Question 2007 Punto door failure!

Hi,

I'm new, registered at the advice of my son, who used to use this site a lot: though he now drives a Peugeot

I have a 2007 Grande Punto 3 door, the driver's side door has stopped opening from the inside- though it opens from the outside. It seems to be some failure with the machanism from the handle from the inside- central locking still works and the door opens from the outside.

Does anyone know what the failure might be, and what the best solution would be?

Thanks,

Margaret

welcome to the forum, have a look in the Grande Punto section i believe this was a common problem and the fix is in that section

Hello and welcome it is a very common fault with the build quality of the door lock mechanism (although fiat have launched several upgraded units) it Might be DIY repairable but if not its a short job to replace it Yourself (or probably more accurately smile sweetly at your son and show him this)

(might need a cake baking as working on cars tends to make men hungry )
