Q: Door lock stuck

asked by on

My car's door lock is stuck.

Removal of the door panel is likely required to look over the mechanics of the door locking and opening system. Without removing the door panel, it could be multiple components. A qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic can assist you with diagnosis of your door’s lock.
