The lock itself works but the handle won't open the door.

Too many to list......
you have to take the door skin off and remove the handle from the inside. Depending how bad it is, you might be able to modify it to get it working. If not, you'll be able to pick one up second hand cheap enough and fit it.

easy

you will see screws right round the outter edge of your trim (i say trim not skin)

start by unscrewing those,

then you need to pop out the little orange lug on your door lock/button,
use a pocket knife or something similar, & carefully pop it off

remove the button then you will see a screw in the plastic section behind where the button sits

*could be a screw around the inner handle, cant remember*

thats all there is to it trim should come off

Thanks sixx,

Does anyone know how to change handle or have any links to a site with instructions, I don't want to mess with central locking without knowing what I'm doing ?

Or if not replace it, how it can be fixed ? its only the lever itself that wont open the door.
