    Default Rear Door locks

    Something has just started to happen to my rear door lock, when I press the buttton to unlock, the back button bounces up and down and the door remains locked. It someimes unlocks ok, it sometimes doesnt.

    It wont open the door even if you try to manually lift the lock button?

    Before I start to strip door cards off, is this likely to be a broken wire probably around the hinge area or is the locking mechanism starting to fail??

    I had that problem in my Siggy. Turned out that when my son was moving house we used my car for some of the delicate stuff. Someone decided just to force the door shut instead of moving whatever it was that was causing the problem. Anyway what happened was that with forcing the door shut the push rod was forced back and bent which meant that the door lock mechanism would not operate properly. Had to take the card off and realign the push rod and now all is well.

    Cheers will strip the door card off at the weekend.

    Just sounded like there was a clutch in the unit and it was slipping.
