What do I do if the rear door on my Land Rover is stuck?

I have a Land Rover Discovery II, and I can only get the door open if I use force. How do I fix it?

you need to remove the door panel from the dorr while it is closed to gain access to the latch on the inside of the door . operate by hand.

You can first try to lube the locking mechanism and then adjust the door jam stricker. The rear door has probably sprung out of adjustment which would require you to adjust the door jam striker.

It sounds like the is a problem with the latch. I would recommend removing the door panel and inspecting it. It may just need to be lubricated to function smoothly. Also make sure the handle mechanism moves freely and is not damaged.

The rear door of the Land Rover Discovery II have a reputation for getting jammed on a regular basis. Normally its not the lock mechanism as one may imagine, its actually the door structure itself. The first area to look at is the gaskets around the door. The next area of concern is the frame, it may have been bent.

Sounds like the striker plate might be out of alignment or the latch might be getting hung up. First check and see if striker plate is loose or looks like it's been moved if not try lubricating the latch with some white lithium grease.

It's very likely that the rear door hatch's latch is sticking. You should use some penetrating oil to free the mechanism.
