Passenger door prob. zx

Postby Stpeh » Sun Aug 11, 2002 10:01 pm

Hi all,
I have an 1994 zx 14i 5 door. The passenger door won't open from the inside. It does lock when I use central locking, but the passenger door can only be opened from the outside! I would appreciate any help or advice with this one. Thanks in advance, Stephen.

Hi Stephen - Sounds as though there's something amiss with the link rod. You'll have to remove the inside trim, cut away the sealing sheet then look at the link rod going from the inside handle to the lock. I don't have a ZX, but door locks are generally very similar.

I had a similar problem with my ZX. It was as John suggested a link rod problem. Because the door was quite stiff and sometimes had to be slammed the connection to the lock had popped off, the door could be locked on the remote and opened from the inside but not from outside the car. From what I can remember there is a similar rod to the inner handle with the same connection at the lock. Might be worth a look?
