I’ve gone in through the top and can lift the catch further but it doesn’t open. Can’t hear the catch open.Thinking something broke in the catch.....

The linkage operates a latch on the locking mechanism (circled in red) - you need to push this latch with a screwdriver.

Cheers Jim I’m in.....

For some reason the handle lever 2 via link rod 7 doesn’t move back full. When you lock the door the lever at the other end of 7 goes in the wrong position ie is trapped by the handle lever / latch lock lever.

Will have to study the drivers side tomorrow :w

We May have something at the garage. We have doors but I don't think they have handles fitted.

Jim King or Phil Andrew are your best bet I reckon Ben
