Q: Q: Doors not opening

asked by on

I have two doors that don't open reliably. The lock/latch of both need work.

The mechanical connections inside the door may have become worn or misaligned over time. In a few cases, the components just need some lubrication. An experienced mechanic, like the ones at YourMechanic, will able to spot the problem and advise you properly with a thorough inspection of your door locks and latches.
