After 6 months of driving my 91 300SE, I just noticed that I can open the right rear door from the outside when the lock button is down. I looked through the CD manual, but I couldn't find a section with specifics on the cranks and levers to help me figure out what's going on. Any advice on how to procede?

Also, the right front door seems to have a non-standard lock mechanism. I can't turn the key counterclockwise from the outside to lock the car (even with the door closed), but I can push down on the lock button with the door open to engage the central locking feature. No other W126 I've seen is this way.

Thanks is advance.
