Rear Passenger Door Will Not Open from either inside or outside, door handle is extended out.

Any ideas?

Well, oddly enough the rear door opened today so the cable/linkage must still be connected. But alas its decided not to open again. I now suspect some sort of electrical problem. Weird

Please let us know what was the outcome from visit in dealership? Did they fixed it? If so what was the reason of the issue?

Strange things afoot. Despite opening normally once at the weekend and then deciding not to open from either inside or out the rear passenger door has decided today to open normally, so its not a mechanical linkage issue it must be electrical; or maybe not.

I've had issues for a while with the drivers door not shutting from inside with a reasonable pull, door latches but is not fully shut and warning appears when ignition started, a open and then pull harder shut usually resolves it. It have become so routine I almost expect every time to have to open then slightly more forcefully shut the door.

I wonder if the factory lubrication of the latch mechanism has 'hardened' or become less effective over time (car built July 18). I have today lubricated the latch with engine oil and a dab of grease, hopefully that will reseolve the issue.

Anyone else have a similar experience?

Yes mines the same, driver's side rear (uk) started being hard to close and when I eventually got it closed it won't open from inside or out. Rang the dealers they recommended I call out Landrover assist who came out about an hour later he spent about half an hour trying to get it open but gave up in the end and said it'll be a complicated job as they will have to try and get the door card off with the door closed!!! It's booked into Guy Salmon Knutsford next month to get sorted so will let you know the outcome.

Make sure you check the door card for any damage if they have to try and take it off with door closed. It takes up to 6 months to get replaced as they are made to order.
