The other day I parked my car, went and did something and then returned to my car. I unlocked the driver side door using the remote entry, and guess what, I couldnt open the door!!!

I tried about ten times and finally gave up, I just opened it from inside. It has been two days now and it hasnt happened again. I have always felt that the door handle is not easy to lift. What do you guys think? Ask the dealer to replace the whole door? :D :D :D

Re: Re: I couldnt get in my car...

The HACK said:


Otherwise I'd just suck it up and go dukes of hazzard style, the coupe windows are HUGE anyway.

Paint a big confederate flag on your car while you're at it.
:p

So the heat from parking under the sun has something to do with it?

Hey Alan,

The remote entry works fine, it locks and unlock properly. I could see that little thing(dont know what u call it) came up. It was when I tried to open the door with the latch. It didnt open, I didnt even hear that click sound from the latch. :cry: :cry:

Also it wasnt locked from inside, we left the car, locked the door with the remote and then unlocked with the remote.

This weekend Im gonna take the car in and see what they say.

Nope, it hasnt happened since. But like I mentioned in my first post, the latch is sometimes hard to lift, i mean, i can lift it, but it takes me quite a bit of strength until it clicks and opens. Sometimes i worry i might break the latch because i am using so much ((((((POWER)))))).

Yes I know the dealer wont do anything if I cant reproduce what I want them to see, but at least I can show them how unfriendly the latch is. Hopefully they can do something about it... :dunno: :dunno:
