Help please.


Drivers door will not pull open from the outside after I removed the barrel lock because that is broken - key just spins when inserted. I have ordered a lock repair kit for this as the paddle part has broke.


My problem now is since taking the barrel out to inspect it it has caused the door to not open from the ouside - you could prior to this.


Any ideas? will it all work correctly once the repair kit has been fitted??


Galaxy Mk2.


Please any replies greatly appreciated.


Many thanks.

It sounds like you don't have the handle reinstalled correctly - its easy to install once the lock barrel is sorted, as you can turn the paddle around which makes installing it much easier (without having to strip the rest of the door apart).


Its possible you've bent the operating bit, but best bet is to fix the paddle bits, then see if you can get it sorted from there, its possible to remove and reinstall the handle when its working correctly without removing the rest of the lock, but if the operating bit doesn't turn its much more tricky (which will be the case if its broken).
