Land Rover Discovery Problem Report
Land Rover Discovery Rear Cargo Door May Not Open
Internal failure of the rear cargo door latch can cause the door to not open when using the outside door handle.
Rear door would not open inside or out. I fixed the problem. The outside handle was frozen inward.I took a screwdriver and on the side of the handle (not under the center, but on the side using friction) GENTLY got it back to the position that would open the door. It opened. I then sprayed WD 40 in a small hole above the latch on the side of the door (located by the child lock lever) It apears to work fine now. - bfinn
Rear cargo door would not open from inside or outside. The outside handle sticks where it still moves about a quarter inch but doesn't open. Simply take a small flathead screwdriver or butter knife and pry the handle back towards the door. Squeeze and it should open. Once open lubricate with PB Blaster or WD 40 in the handle area and the door catch. Works well after that. - Visitor

Cargo door handle became stuck in up position. I was unable to release the locking mechanism from the inside or outside. I used a flat head screwdriver to gently pry the handle back down to normal position. Applied oil to locking device to keep from seizing again. - Visitor
I've had this happen two or three times, each years apart. The latch gets stuck and the door cannot be opened from either the outside or inside. The fix is to remove the latch cover (with the logo) and lubricate it with WD-40 to free the mechanism. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why the recommended maintenance includes "lubricate door locks" every 12 months or 15,000 miles. - DLDavis
