Hi all, not looked at problem yet,I know the way to reach in to the solenoid "lever" but which way do you move it,pull,push,left or right. I have searched this site and looked through my workshop manual but can't find it.I know I've seen it somewhere.Thanks for any help

On my SE you pull the lever linearly parallel with the body of the solenoid, toward the rear of the car. 

Mine were clicking, bt not releasing the door,  I had to lube the shaft of the solenoids, and the release latch at the door.  Now they work fine.

Yes, pull the lever towards the back of the car.

one of mine wasn't working but it turned out to be the  switch under the dash so definitely worth checking that too...

Thanks for all replies,light finger pressure pull a few millimetres backwards.I took the screw out of the plastic housing insert under the flap and pulled it out.Is the plastic "barrel "that the cable end inserts into and passes through,an integral part of the plastic housing as mine is a separate piece?Is it broken off?
