Wink Rear Passenger Door wont open

Hi all, new member here.
the issue I am having is that the Rear Passenger door wont open from the outside of the car, I also cant open it from the inside as we have had child lock engaged on that door since we purchased it.

When I try to open from the outside I get nothing at all, it feels like the handle isn't pulling anything, when I open the other door the handle feels like it catches and you can hear it pull the door open if that make sense, but the broken side is just the handle moving and clicking catching on nothing.

anyone have any ideas on what to do?

This happened to our first XC60. It was under warrenty and the dealer fixed it but when I asked how they opened it they said they got someone to repeatedly press the central unlock on the drivers door as fast as they could make it work whilst someone else tried to repeatedly open the door from the inside.

If that doesn't work and a dealer can't open it from the edge of the door card then the door card will have to be broken to get it open and fix the problem.

Faulty door locks are a known problem on some V40s; if you have not had the car too long and bought it from a dealer, you may get it replaced under warranty, or a goodwill contribution towards a new one.

Default Tried it

I tried to open using the drivers door unlock switch but had no luck. Someone pressed he unlock button serveral times and I tried to unlock it from inside by pulling handle and pushing door but got nowhere with it.

You didn't answer 60041's question on how long you have had it but I suggest that the next stop would be the Dealer if it is under warrenty, the garage you brought it from if second hand, a local garage to see if they have the knowledge and tools to open from the edge of the door card or from inside the window space. If none of them are suitable or work then it may be breaking the door card to get access to fix.

It couldn't be frozen perhaps? If water gets in it can behave exactly like that. A squirt of WD40 should sort it out.
