Question Child Locks

Hi all

I am a brand new member and have just traded in my Audi A4 Avant for a 3 year old, mega low mileage top of the range Kia Sportage, which we love. I have an issue with the rear offside door child lock. I have turned the screw as shown on the door but the child lock is still engaged. I did the same with the nearside door and it works fine.

Has anyone any experience of this and what did you do please?

Man thanks, Paul

you'll have to remove the door panel and access the child lock inside and disengage it manually.

i've removed the door panels on my honda accord and honda crv to replace the factory speakers. its very easy to do. i also removed the front driver panel on my Sportage to replace the broken side mirror.

here's video of the rear door.
