Hi all,
Out for my early morning jog this morning, I got back to my car and opened the back door to put my gear in.

Door would then not close. It would slide into position but it seemed the latch would not catch.
Leaning against it I locked the car

Unlocked it and the back door would not open.

Went to work and door works fine now.
Only thing I can think of is it does not like the cold as it was minus 5 this morning.
Any thoughts?

Hi. It's a 14 plate but I have dealers warranty. It's booked in for a check.
Was just wondering if it was one of those idiosyncrasies machines can have.
Once had a Beko washing machine that point blank refused to work weekends

=)) I know EXACTLY what you're saying!.. ;;)

"...it does not like the cold as it was minus 5 this morning."
It happent to me once or twice but only when cold weather came just after some moisture got its way into the latch, somehow... :-?
In fact I guess the front doors are more sensitive to negative temperatures than the back ones.
The solution is using plenty of good grease and renewing it twice during winter. :>Edited by: vdragoslav

I've had this problem on and off for over a year. It is worse in cold weather but it doesn't go away completely in the summer. It is definitely coursed by body twist, it mainly happens when I park on the pavement. As the front wheel raises the back door creaks.
