    Default Door Lock/Unlock

    Hi all,

    Firstly, i'd like to appologise for my recent absence. My misses has just had a baby girl, so i've been kinda tied up with that.

    Now my problem. It's nothing serious, more an annoyance really and i'd like your suggestions as to a resolution if possible. I can lock and unlock all the doors from the interior passanger side button but the one on the drivers side doesn't work. The other buttons, boot, windows and mirrors are fine but the door lock/unlock doesn't work. Any ideas folks?

    Hope this won't be a Tech 2 job. Knowing Vx it's gonna be.

    Your help is appreciated.

    Faulty switch unit on the drivers door, or contacts just needing cleaned. Couple of guys have posted up about this and they took the switch unit out, and apart, and gave the contacts a clean and it sorted it. Can't recall if there problem was with the window switches or the unlocking, but same unit and same principle.

    EEK. Removing the door card probably involves me using a screwdriver. I may be posting a "how do i refit a busted door card" post sometime soon lol.

    I'll give it a try at the weekend and see what i can do.

    Cheers Guys
