Use the Tech-Train Productions TT-1017 car-opening tool and a wedge to unlock the passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting a wedge near the inside lock control button in the passenger door. An inspection light can be used to view the vertical linkage rod. Carefully insert the TT-1017 car opening tool into the opening so the hooked end of the tool can grasp the linkage rod from the outboard side of the door. Make certain the hooked end of the tool is no longer against the glass before rotating. Rotate the tool to capture the vertical linkage rod. Watch the locking button for movement when rotating the car opening tool. Once there is movement, pull the car opening tool towards the front of the vehicle to bind the vertical linkage rod. While maintaining binding pressure, lift the tool to unlock the door locking mechanism.
The direction to rotate the 1994-2002 Land Rover Range Rover driver’s door lock plug to the unlocked position is counterclockwise. There is no key lock on the front passenger door.
