Hi All from Zambia,

I recently acquired a 2010 Nissan PF 2.5D It had a broken rear door when i got it.

I've noticed that when you unlock the car, this door won't open from the outside at all until you've opened it from the inside once, then after that its a normal well behaved door until you lock it again.

once you unlock the same behaviour resumes....

Any ideas?? Smile

That's a common problem on the Pathfinders made in Spain. Replace the outside door handle assembly.

Oh.. It's going to be hard to say without actually having the door panel removed and seeing what's going on. It could be that the cable is binding. See part diagram link:

Welcome to ThePath!
Could you post some pics of the Pathy in Zambia perhaps?

I always find it interesting to see it in (to me) exotic locales. Very Happy
