There was a TSB report that was sent out in June and this is what it states:
New ‘Inteva’ door latch operating system.
In a process of continuous product improvement and vehicle styling, a running production change to the door latching system of the 2012 model year Evora has been introduced from VIN CH_10630. The method of opening the doors as described in section 6 (Entry & Comfort) within the main Owner’s Handbook using the exterior and interior door release handles remains unchanged.
New Latch Features
Central Door Locking The door sill button allowing the individual locking of either the driver or passenger door is no longer fitted, but the use of the interior CDL (Central Door Locking) switch to lock both doors from
the inside of the vehicle remains unchanged, as does the Dynamic (drive away) Locking feature as described in the main Owner’s handbook.The interior door release handles are no longer disabled in the event that Dynamic Locking has been selected; simply pulling the door release handle will now automatically unlock the door. Mechanical Door Locking
In the event of a discharged battery or an inoperative transmitter key it is no longer possible to mechanically lock the right hand door as described in the main Owner’s handbook. If it is necessary to lock the right hand door under these circumstances, an emergency latch access hole is located on the right
hand end of the door shell rearward of the door trim panel.
Mechanical Door Locking Procedure
1.With the right hand door open, carefully remove
the grommet covering the emergency access
2.Lift the exterior door handle upwards.
3.Using a suitable screwdriver place it approximately 10mm into the access hole.
4.With the exterior door handle still lifted, use
a lateral wrist action to rotate the screwdriver
so that its tip moves to the left within the door
panel. An audible click should be heard as the
screwdriver moves the latch locking quadrant
into the locked position.
