Default Rear Child Locks

Hi, I am new to the forum and have just bought my first PT. I am having problems with rear doors opening from inside. I have tried moving the child locks switch downwards but it hardly seems to move and makes no difference. Doors open fine from outside - seems wierd as it is the same on both rear doors. Any help would be most appreciated.

Welcome to the forums.
You are on the right path - lever on side of door when you open them - maybe spray some WD-40 in there?+

Thanks. I tried that and it made no difference at all. Seems strange that both rear doors are having the same problem. Is there something else I should be doing?

Looks like you'll have to get inside the door to see what isn't working. Just tried mine and the lever moves about 1/2 inch, almost the whole length of the oval slit and locks the doors from the inside just fine. If your switches are just barely moving then somethings wrong inside. I do agree that both rear doors having the same problem is weird. Do you have the white sticker next to the lever showing you how it works?
