Hi,
My 1988 RR Classic has developed unlocking issues, seems like the buttons are not popping up all the way. If I give them a hand while I pull the handle they open. Any thoughts?

There are tiny torsion springs in the locking mechanism that "help" the actuators lift the plastic things. They have a habit of breaking over time. once they do, the actuators cant quite lift the things high enough to unlock the door. If you search for range rover classic door lock springs, they should come up. Super cheap, but kind of a pain since you have to take the mechanism out of the door to replace them.

I noticed all my doors except the rear pass. It doesnt unlcok, need to lift the plastic by hand. Very common issue and as LanceL described, an "easy" but annoying fix.
