Question Rear doors won't open from outside...

...anyone had this fixed under the 3rd year warranty?

When I picked the car up they said they had worked on the rear door handles because they were sticking. I've always found the offside one to be a bit sticky but as I rarely open that door it hasn't been an issue. More recently though it has gotten worse and it takes a bit of jiggling to get the door to open.

hi m8 , the fix is new outer door handles complete,they had a real problem with these,firstly trying to modify the original handles by shortening the cable and filing away the plastic,guess what it didnt work.

I have this problem, pulling the read door handles from the part nearest the front doors won't open them, however pulling from the end nearest the rear of the car they open everytime.

And buying a 3-door is never the answer, More-Door all the way
