Hi all!
I have a problem with my front right door lock. Since it started to get cold, in the morning the door doesn't unlock. The car has central lock. Even if I try to unlock it manually, it's not working. After 20-30 min it starts to work normally again.
Is anyone else having the same problem?
Note that I'm in Europe, so the car may be a little different here.

I have exactly the same problem on my 95 scoupe.
i had to climb in my passenger door until i got to work and then it unlocked fine.
i put it down to age, but if anyone else can help id love to know!

Is it the lock is frozen or is there something else going. Can't hurt to try some lock-de-icer and spray that in the lock. Also lubricates the mechanism. Just some friendly Canadian idea.

Next time you have the door apart (the inside cover off) GENTLY remove the plastic cover and spray with WD-40 (or similar oil) ALL the door linkages.
On my '99 I actually had to remove the door lock from the door, disassemble it and lubricate it ... not a problem since, and that was about 18 mths ago.

Thank you all, guys!
Unfortunatelly, before writing here, I had the door disassembled, greased all over. Except the mechanism of the electric lock (inside) cause this is sealed. But even like that, I sprayed inside, by the joint, some grease.
I think that I have to change the lock or just suppress it and leave it manually. Manually, it's working very easy.
Thanks again.
