Audi A6 with stuck door - Buster
I have a 2000 A6. The rear offside door has completely jammed and will not open. The indicator button will not come up when the central locking is operated. The button will come up when the internal handle is operated, but it will not stay up and drops down the instant the handle is released.

If I try the remote, the button flicks about 1mm and then returns and it sounds like the door locks itself again.

My local independant garage has had a look but says that unless he can open the door, he cannot access the door internals.

Has anybody seen this problem before, and more to the point, any ideas as to how to open the door so it can be repaired?

Has the exterior lever returned to the right position ? Has it jammed the striker ? VW and Audis used to have problems with outer handles . I would wind down the window and see if you can reach anything resembling the internal operating rods / mechanism , preferably using a break-in kit , failing that coat hanger with hook

The outer handle seems fine. In fact, both of the handles move freely with normal spring resistance.

I will try and fish around with a straightened out coat hanger as you suggest. It would help if I could find a diagram of the door mechanism somewhere so I knew where to start.
