Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I went to my friends house with no problems left his house
got in the car tried to close to door and it wouldn't latch.
I've read up on it and many people are saying that the
latch is stuck down and can b popped out but it's not at
all I can push the latch down and Pop the latch back up
but when I close the door it won't latch itself all the
electrical is working in the door so I can't seem to find out
what's wrong ? Any help would be greatly appreciated

The latch itself might be broken if it wont latch the door into the closed position. Try ebay or your local junk yard for a used replacment latch if it cannot be repaired.

Found this online: Assuming that you have tried WD40, and checked for signs of obvious wear, there IS a bolt that is for fine adjustment of the door lock position. Unfortunately to reach it you have to remove the door lining and the airbag, etc, which is quite a task.

I was going to use wd40 but I hear if not used properly it can cause damage to the electrical ?
