Right you are .--- All of you who has not have to face that problem at the Wal Mart
parking lot in the driving rain at night ,    please do this test ---soon.

This is a common thing about that type of lock.   Open the door push that little horseshoe
shaped plate in the door down. Click --now door will not close.   Visualize the "Pin"
pulling it the other way (up)  when door is opened. Simply pull bracket up at same 
time as you pull doorhandle.  ------ And give your doorclosing arm a rest --LOL.


PS: Yes I will explain  Exhaust pipe "trick" and glowplug procedure another time.
