Red Bay is sending us a new one but i am now reading that there has been the same problem with others. I am worried about what if it had been an emergency and we have pets with us. We are on the Road for the next 3 months and i hope we have no more issues with that Door.
I currently have a 2006 Allegro Bay and had the door lock do the same thing...could not be opened from the inside easily. You could not press it down to open, just seemed stuck. However, with work it could be opened. From the outside the latch was totally loose and did not engage when pulled. We had to order a new lock assembly from Red Bay to correct the problem. We, too, has pets inside and the driver side door saved us, becoming our main point of entry.
We are considering trading for a diesel, with no driver side door, it worries me what we would do if that happened again and the pets were stuck inside. I guess break a window, if the lock smith can't fix it...he couldn't this time.
