The door locks on the right side of my volvo no longer unlock electronically, I have to do it by hand from the inside. The back door broke first, then the front a while later. I was unlocking the door electronically and my friend tried to open it at the same time. Now it's broken.

Is this easy to fix? Blown of air lines or something?

This is not the full answer but it is step 1.

It's pretty easy to get the lock assembly out of there. Getting the new one in takes a bit more finessing, but it's not hard. Just requires a remarkable amount of semi-precise fiddling.

Best to just replace the entire lock assembly. Trying to take it apart and fix the electrical switch is not fun, and rarely successful.
