I have tried a number of time to lock it with a screw driver & door open & little lock does not lock when I push on it.

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
I would suspect that the latch has simply failed and is in need of replacement in that case. This part can only be purchased from a MINI dealer (some sell online)
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
