Thanks - I haven’t had the chance to compare them. I will make sure I get the correct shape.

Re: Rear passenger doorhandle quandary

Just one small final query, as I am about to order a used replacement rear outer passenger door handle (saves having to spray it!), can anyone tell me whether Series 1 (up to 2013) rear handles are identical to later models?
Many thanks, Alec.

Re: Rear passenger doorhandle quandary

Problem solved . Gosh, doesn’t it feel good to write those words? The answer was to cut a 1” x 12” strip of 25 thou rigid, flexible transparent PVC, as used for covering garden frames etc. It slipped in nicely, exactly level with the top of the arm rest.

Re: Rear passenger doorhandle quandary

Twenty years back I'd still be 62; eight grandchildren ensure that I still use those child locks!

Re: Rear passenger doorhandle quandary

Thanks again Colin, Very helpful again. Are you sure the CONSULT tool will even defeat the child lock, which has the appearance of being a mechanical over-ride? I haven’t yet downloaded the links which I will do on my desktop that’s connected to my printer, so the wiring diagram may provide the answ...

Re: Rear passenger doorhandle quandary

Many thanks to you both, gloucester and calnorth. I had considered the first suggestion already, but it would have to be very thin and flexible, rather like an oversized feeler gauge with a V cut at the end, and at least I could give it a trial run with the opposite door. I must give it a try. That ...

Rear passenger doorhandle quandary

My 2013 series 1 Qashqai has a seemingly insoluble problem and I would welcome suggestions. The right rear passenger door handle no longer opens the door - probably a mechanical problem, the handle does not quite return fully after pulling at it. The problem is that the childlock is switched on, so ...
