    This happens occasionally - The car is still on, I get out and close the driver's door. Later I try to open the door from outside and I couldn't.
    I am able to open the other three doors from outside and it's also possible to open the driver's door from inside. I have this issue from the beginning. I informed about this during the last service and they did some rust cleaning and greasing but that didn't help. I am not worried about this but sometimes lock/unlock using the remote also doesn't work - I have to press lock/unlock 5/6 times are use the key.

    * Just wanted to check if anybody else also facing this issue.
    * How to explain this to the SA as the problem doesn't happen every time.
    * Can this be a due to a improperly fitted door after installing sunfilm

    Ohh... so I am not the only one facing this issue. I face this problem for left rear side door. Whenever I try to open the left rear door from inside the clip thingy doesn't come out. Faced this issue 2-3 times but it's not consistent. Will show it during my next servicing.
    Never faced issue while using the remote though for the driver's side.

    even i had the same issue, also i got this repaired/adjusted 3 times and replaced the driver side handle lock, after that got frustrated then blasted the TASS they did some adjustment and now it is working fine, there is spring they use to adjust for the handle lock from outside nothing else.

    I had this problem on the very day of my Punto's delivery, but with the passenger side door. I guess the accessories guy messed up the cable while installing the speakers in my case. Got it resolved in an accessories shop the next day. Never had a problem since then.
