Hey I have a 2013 Grand Vitara and the rear door has decided to stop working. First it won’t unlock and then when I go to close the door again it just bounces back open. It seems like the locking mechanism isn’t working but I’ve tried to fiddle with it and it seems to be moving fine. Any tips? I can’t get the door to close at the moment

sounds like its 1/2 latched. Close the lock fully with a round shank screwdriver then get someone to pull on the door handle as if opening it and release the latch by pulling on the "trapped" screwdriver. Once its opened again, get some lube in there, I bet its full of grit and binding. My 2013 does it occasionally after a few days off road and a bit of vibration. the 2015 hasn't done it ....yet
