Once you've opened it you'll need to trim the plunger to give a couple mm clearance. It is something to do with the central locking and it thinking the car is being broken into !

A pain in the arse and took me ages to suss it out. Jaguartvr pointed me in the right direction , he had the same thing too !
Will have a go this afternoon
