V40 lock door lock problems
I have a 63 reg V40 D3, 16000 miles. The first lock to fail was front passenger door. Unable to open from inside or out. As I had a disabled passenger this was a real problem. I sent for Volvo assist who were with me in just under an hour. By that time I'd managed to open the door by continually trying from the remote key fob and the driver's door mounted locking button. The car was returned to the dealer (Rybrooks, Chester) and the internal door mechanism changed under warranty. I am now experiencing the same fault with the rear nearside door and , more worryingly, the drivers door. The car is now booked in for those faults to be attended to, again, under warranty. I feel that as there are safety issues relating to this problem Volvo should have issued a recall.
