    Hi - can anyone help, please?

    The rear offside passenger door on Vectra (hatch, 1996) is permanently
    locked. I can move locking catch thingy up and down - to no avail, even
    though it feels as if it's doing something. Not sure whether I'm getting
    the normal clonky noise from the door when operating remote locking /
    unlocking cos the other 3 doors clonk so it's hard to tell; but either way,
    the manual catch doesn't move up or down. Oh - and the child lock is not

    Any clues / links would be great - especially how to gain access, while the
    door is closed, to repair whatever's broken!

    Dunno if this is related but my drivers door occasionally stays locked and
    if pushed in makes a clicky sound then with about ten minutes of fiddling
    with the inside handle and the outside one (at the same time) it will open,
    happens about once every two months all other doors function fine but none
    will deadlock

    I think in my case when im jetwashing it im spraying too much by the handle
    because it seems to cause the problem. also leaving it for a day or 2 will
    mean the door will open, probably the waters evaporating i dunno

    Kinda embarrasing at the end of a days work everyone watches you go in the
    passenger door and over the middle.. oh well :)
