It is a Peugeot 807.

Is there any mechanism which would prevent a door handle from releasing the opening on the outside.

There is no physical "latch" I can see.

There is one of these on the door:

And one of these it connects to:

I am most likely having to strip the door but wondered if anyone could explain how the door would "lock" without a physical latch to help me understand as to why I cannot open it from the outside?

I am guessing that nowadays it is not just a lever and cable but electrical contacts?

Thanks for any help.
