Rear door wont shut on QPV.

Hi guys

Loaded up the car to drive home tonight, went to shut the drivers side rear door and it just bounced back.

The latch on the door wont engage, Ive tried a combination of button presses whilst door is shut, but I think possibly the actual mechanism is faulty if anybody has come across that before?
I dont think the door relies on electrics to shut or open (except for the 2nd door popper button)

Thanks

Did the door hit with a solid "thud" or did you hear the latch try and engage....then disengage...? Look at the rear edge off the door, is the mechanism in the "closed" position? Look at the other rear door as a reference, and see if the latch is closed or open....

Sounds like the latch may be in the "closed" position....

Hi mate, it staysin the open position. I have tried to push the latch shut with a blunt screwdriver and it just springs back suspect the latch is faulty but didnt know if its fixable.

Found its the motor for the door popper. The brushes burnt out and seized which is what held the door from shutting. For short term you can just remove this side, but ill find another new unit..

Thank You for letting us know the cause...I didn't even think about the electric door popper!
