install a second door lock

Post by salva72 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 2:07 pm

Hello,

My car is left hand drive but my garage is narrow and the drivers door is too close to the wall, so I have thought what could happen if the battery is empty and I can not unlock the car because is too close to the wall. ( I park the car in "N" to adjust it into the parking )

Is possible to installs and second door lock on the right door ?

Thanks.
Salvador

If you are saying your garage parking space allows you access to the passenger side of the car, then would it not be possible (and a good deal less hassle and expense!) to just reverse into the garage space, which would mean the driver's door would then be on the accessible side?

surely what catwoman suggests is the way to go reverse into garage space so you have access to drivers door ?

Very strange that reversing has not been thought of or done.
