I have fitted new bushes on the hinge of the drivers door at it moves lovely . I fitted a new cover and set screws to the striker plate lined it up and was happy that it closed first go .Not fully but half a click .
I pushed the door handle and it wouldn't open I climbed through and the interior handle had no effect
The door was working well when I remove it and I assumed it would close fine again,
I wonder if any member can help
I know its a door lock and has to be secure and I am terrified that I might have to wreck all my hard work to get it open .

I don't know if this will help but I had a similar problem when I bought my '72 Sprint. The advice I got from this site was to drive the car around for a bit and it should pop open. I was lucky and it did.

the only way to open the door was to push the door IN , then press the button and open the door ! The rubbers compressed over time and now the problem has gone
