Hello - newbie here!

just acquired a ‘03 T4 - and the central locking has gone mental! The drivers internal door handle feels slack with no resistance, when unlocking the passenger door all the locks come up then back down again and when the Passenger door is open (Have to catch it when the locks are up) all door locks go up and down for around a minute. We can’t get to the door card screws to look inside at the mechanism. Does anyone have any suggestions other than cutting a hole in the door card? Which I’d really rather not have to do...

Thanks in advance 🙏🏼

The lock mechanism lever has come off!
Common ptoblem as it's fastened to a plastic clip.....
Best way is to park it somewhere "dangerous" and wait for a thief to come along with his slip-tool and break in!!!
More sensible is to get a breakdown firm to do it.
People HAVE done it themselves....you need a thing metal strap with a hook on one end, slide down the window rubber, and keep going up and down until you manage to hit the catch....obviously takes a lot of time if you don't know where it is!

Can you not unlock it with the key from outside?
