    Default Does the drivers door lock whilst its open

    Changed my window mechanism today after the spot welds broke on my old one. Just noticed that i cant push the lock down whilst the door is open. This is only on the drivers door though, if i open any other door i can push and pull the lock as normal.

    Is this some thing thats supposed to happen to force you to lock the car with the key or fob, or have i broken it.

    Isn't a big deal after i found out i can still lock the car, but ive left the door trim off until i can confirm everything is working as its supposed to be.

    Maybe if someone could pop out to their car and see if yours is the same that would be grand

    Thanks

    It's normal. It's to stop you locking the door, then closing it, with the keys still in the ignition

    Ah, makes sense. Had a feeling it could be normal, i just couldnt think why its on the drivers door. Well now i know!

    Better go put the door card back on for the 2nd time, then hopefully once ive wiped my mucky greased up handprints off the window i can call it a day.

    Thanks Tony
