    I've heard a lot about Clubman doors not opening, but this sounds like a new one, mine won't latch!

    The left side door works just fine, but the right side door won't latch., it just pops open an inch like when I open it with the fob.

    Has anyone experienced that problem?

    No that is odd. So does it latch then pop open. Can you hear the electric latch relies?

    It doesn't latch at all. If you close the door, the gas strut just opens it.

    I've ordered a new latch from MINImania

    As the caretaker of a Clubster I'm interested in how the repair goes. Please report back.

    I found a good tutorial for this on YouTube.


    Everything works great now.
