Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you.

Sounds like the central locking solenoid has stopped working.

You will have to remove the door card to investigate problem , it will not be easy but if you put seat right back

then this will give you lot more space to work.

When you have the door card off you can then try to wiggle links and controls to open door.

If you can manually operate the solenoid then this should allow you to open door.

Please keep me informed.
