Why won't the back door open from the inside?


Asked by May 12, 2016 at 08:13 PM about the 2009 Jaguar XF Premium Luxury

Question type: General

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I didn't see it in the XF forums. I just
recently purchased a 2009 XF in GREAT shape. And so far, everything is just
fine. The one minor problem....can't seem to open the rear doors from the
inside (outside is fine). Any thoughts or suggestions?

Child locks maybe should be a switch on the door near the latch


Hey Turbo 96, thanks for the quick answer. I was thinking that it was a computer thing and was looking through the touch screen to see if there was something I needed to do. Are you saying it's as simple as opening the back door and ?? (I may need to investigate as I wasn't sure where the switch you mention is)


Yes open the back door and on the door itself where the door latches to the car frame is a black/ little light switch looking thing which should say child safety lock which keeps the door from opening from the inside


Hey, just seeing this now. Thanks a lot for your help! I will take a look when I get home from work :-)


Happy to help
