This morning I tried to open the passenger-side door (of my 2001 VW Eurovan) but it appears to be stuck. The door is unlocked. I can pull the handle, but apparently not far enough to operate the door mechanism. Same for both interior and exterior door handles. The other doors appear to be OK.
Lock/unlock with the remote keyfob appears OK.
I tried lock/unlock with the actual physical key, but it seems that I can only push the key about 2/3rds of the way in.
So it appears that some numskull joker tried to jimmy my door yesterday evening, failed, but left something (part of a key, perhaps) in the lock.
Any tips/advice for removing whatever object is stuck in the lock myself?
Or is this something I'll need a mechanic or a locksmith to fix?
I thought the door was not openable at all, but I fiddled with it a bit more and it turns out I can open it with the interior door handle. I'll take the door cover off later to see what I can find - I know how to do this from when I fixed the powerwindows :)
