Hi Andy


What you need to do is remove the outer door handle, you can do this by removing the single screw, with the door open look at the edge of the door the torx screw is visible through hole above lock, once screw is removed you can slide handle forward then pull toward you.
You will need one of these kits http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-SHARAN-SEAT-ALHAMBRA-1996-2010-GENUINE-DOOR-LOCK-REPAIR-KIT-7M0-898-083-A-/290679588255?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item43adda859f#ht_500wt_1180

Make sure kit resembles yours as there are different kits depending on year.
2016 Vauxhall Insignia Elite Nav in White 2.0CDTI Manual.
2009 Kia Sedona GS In Black 2.9CRDI 183PS. 5 Speed Manual WAV.
2003 MK2 Galaxy Ghia In Solid Black 1.9 TDI 115PS. 5 Speed Automatic.

Upgraded Eberspaecher booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.
