Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

Strange coincidence that another one of these has been reported recently. I just repaired mine in Jan, and someone on the FB group is going through it now as well. 

Something in the early non-Inteva latch release mechanisms bind as they age, and it results in neither of the handles working to open the door. 

You can fix this yourself if you're handy, but it requires removing the 2 door striker bolts from the inside of the car. I posted a how-to over on LT:

Give me a few to fix it; the mods deleted the wrong duplicate post which had all the info, and I have to recreate it in the second post.

That looks like a pain to sort out although good write up so thanks, I will be giving mine a good lubrication now to hopefully mitigate against this in the future.

Thanks for sharing, good luck sorting Scott and let us know how you got on?

Dave :)
