being a boat owner I have to use waterproof grease on the grease points for the stern drive. I also use it on all the car bits that are vulnerable to water/corrosion like rear door latches, bonnet catches etc. You can get it from your local chandlers - and there will be one wherever you live.

PostPosted: Mon Jan 19, 2009 18:48    Post subject: Rear door lock and handle Reply with quote

Hi Guys,

Lookng for a bit of help. My rear dooe on my Pajero has stopped working. The handle is just floppy when you squeeze it to open. I have an Haynes manual which isn't that helpful and I can't even open the door from the inside to give me room to look. Is there a way I can get to the rear door mechanism without opening the rear door as I can't see any obvious srews to undo to get the inside panel off.

Hope someone can help or has come across this problem and knows and easy solution.

The problem did happen a few weeks ago and then seemed to work again, but then lasted a week and and stopped

Thanks

Tim

You need to climb in the rear compartment (boot space) to get at the inside of the back door.
take off the handle Two screws) and take out the tool storage compartment ( not sure, two or four Screws) and the release catch (one screw, i think), then prise off the door card with a flat blade, just go round the edges and lever it off.
You can then see all the mechanism give it a good going over with wd40 then move it about to free it off.
slap a bit of grease on the moving parts.
As they say, assembly is the reverse.
Job done. half an hour or so.
hope this helps.

yeah as alread said just pull off the panels and spray to get to the mechanisim, but instead of using WD40 i used motorcycle chain lube as this has a solvent in it thats supposed to evaporate off leaving the grease behind but it penetrates the workings better than just grease, and with the nozzle you can get right into the other all of the other locks at the same time

Do you have to take the door card off totally or can you just spray WD40 on it and open and close it a few times? The handle on my door has gone floppy as someone stated, a couple of times now. It seems to happen when it's very cold and usually when we're in the middle of nowhere with a massive muddy dog and two muddy buggies to get back in the boot!

I've just done this on 2 of my vehicles - so took a before and after pic or 2 ...  

before



After




the little white plastic lever is attached to the rear door handle and pushes down the catch. if it is rusted/seized, and stuck down, then the rear door handle is "floppy"

I had to do 1 from inside as it was jammed shut - 25 mins
the other was intermittant, so I did it with the door open - 15-20 mins

mark " can get in now " dale
