Can't open rear door


Asked by Feb 26, 2016 at 10:47 AM about the 2000 Volvo V40 Turbo Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The rear door will not open from the outside handle, even though central locking is indicating that it is unlocked. Can't open it from the inside because the child lock is on.
Any ideas?

What, no manual pull stem on these doors?

The manual pull system for the outside handle does not work. The inside handle is disengaged by the child lock system....

Did you ever solve this problem I have exactly the same thing


Try repeatedly operating the unlock switch to the top right of drivers door. At the same time second person repeatedly pulls on inside door release handle with one hand and pushes to open the door with the other hand . This worked for me on my 2013 V40.
