Hi there, dose the door open from inside, it's quite common in zafira's that wires break in the rubber tube that runs from door to pillar. if you can open door check inside the rubber boot first for broken wire/s. if you cant see any broken wires pull each wire untill it pulls out then find that color the other end and repair. let me know how it goes.

It might be best to get a mate that knows abit about taking things apart. Because u will need to try and part remove door card from inside car to access the door catch n try to open door by fiddling with rods n bars.

well....... spoke to Vauxhall and they've quoted me between £280 to £330 to fix if its worst case scenario and the solenoid has gone, he said its possible that it could just be broken wires or even just a block pin that's disconnected.Think im gonna try and tackle it myself worst comes to worst ill have to take it to Vauxhall.shame there isn't a youtube video on this fault

Ok little update you can access the wiring through the front but I was unable to pull the blue clip out as its too tight so I went on to try and take the door panel off but again to tight with the rear seats in the way so out of anger lol I smacked the door handle on the inside and it opened lol definitely a loose connection or something like that as it only opens when I put pressure on it

Well it's getting difficult to pinpoint problem now. At least we know the door opens now. You defo need someone who knows alittle about electrics to take alook for u. Hav u tried to remove door card now the door opens. And look for loose wobbly connections on door solenoid. I can't help much but guess. It could be 1 of many problems.

Thing is it only opens when the car is locked I did try and take the opposite door off but think I broke one of the clips so I stopped only wanted to see what I was looking at before I attempted the other one
