S1 door fit (or not as the case may be!)

Recommended Posts

The driver's door on my S1 fits but when I shut it fully I can't open it again from the outside. I have to push it from the inside as well as pulling from the outside.

 

The door lock is not hitting the striker plate but it's very close. With the striker plate removed the door fits perfectly well so I know it's the lock/striker that's causing the problem but I've tried moving the striker plate all over the place and it still sticks.

 

Has anybody else had this problem?

 

Thanks, Paul.

Possible it's the lock. Sometimes if I unlock the door from the inside I can open it with the interior handle but the exterior handle thinks it's still locked so will not open. I need to use the key in the lock to make it work. Probably need to adjust the rods but it's been on the to do list for 10 years or so...

Reading Pete's reply. I had a similar issue and it was the rod that connects to the outer door handle causing the issue.

 

Maybe a good place to start.
