    Angry Z3 door jammed lock shut , cannot open

    hi all ,My door is jammed locked shut, with the double lock engaged as far as I can tell. The inner panel has been removed and I can access the locking from inside the door panel, I have operated all levers to no avail and I have tried to direct lubricant to the door latch. I have purchased a used lock which works well and I can see the working operation of the mechanism.
    Obviously cannot open the door to be able to remove the latching mechanism door lock assembly,
    Any sensible suggestions ?????

    Sounds like it may have stuck in the deadlock position, did the door pin stay down on that door? If yes and if you're lucky you may be able to operate the central locking whilst banging the door lock mechanism which can jump the motor back into life for the deadlocking. Then replace the mechanism when door is open.
