How to Open Your Car and Fix Your Lock

It can be very frustrating to see your car stuck in the lock position. Getting a solution to this problem will depend on whether the door is locked but can’t open or the door is locked and wouldn’t close. It makes more sense to contact Smart Locksmith for a lasting solution to this issue. 

Carrying out a diagnosis of Car stuck in the lock position

In case of broken connections, the car lock being stuck in a lock position, it may be due to a problem with the internal connections. For instance, when there is an issue with the connection between door handle, lock cylinder and locking switch then the door may get stuck to the lock position. Repairing the broken connections is the only way to fix this problem and we are pleased to inform you that Smart Locksmith repairs issues with internal connections causing car locks getting stuck in the lock position.

Issues such as Rust, Grime, and jamming can also cause your car door to get stuck in lock position. The building up of rust and dirt inside the door lock assembling can cause the car lock to get stuck in the lock position. Make sure you check the key way to ensure that the key inserts fully in the keyhole and if there is a blockage, please contact Smart Locksmith.

Structural damages can be the worse reason why your car door gets stuck to the lock position. Damages to the door latch, for instance, is one of the commonest structural problems that can cause your car door to get stuck in the lock position. Slamming your door aggressively can cause damages to the door latch and the only solution to structural damages like this is to replace the damaged structure. Please contact Smart Locksmith for 100% reliable replacement and repair of structural damages causing your car door to get stuck in the lock position. 

Opening your car door when it gets stuck to the lock position

If the car door thus not closes due to any of the issues above, then your aim is to gain access to the car lock assembly in the door. Try and open the car door by any means especially through remote and manual attempts. If any of these works then you have to gain access to the internal part of the door and that means you need to remove some internal parts of the door panel while the door is closed. You can gain access to the internal parts of the door panel by unscrewing the self-contained panels located on the overall door panel.

 Once you gain access to the internal assembly, you need to observe the broken or faulty part that is causing the car door lock to get stuck, and replace such. If you are unsure of how to fix the problem, please get in touch with Smart Locksmith technician and we will be right there to diagnose and fix the problem for you.
