Hi all for some reason my near side rear door will not unlock with the fob or with the centre button by the handbrake. To open the door I have to reach over and pull the handle from inside the car but it will lock with the fob and centre button ???????. any ideas guys and gals?.
OK, when the key fob doesn't operate , it is usually the first sign of the lock motors failing. Believe me when I say that I and others have looked into stripping the lock assembly down to repair the motors The usual remedy is to change the lock assembly in the door, not too bad a job but a little fiddly. Where are you based?
It is usually however My rear passenger door didn't always unlock on the fob. Iirc a mod was issued by mg rover for the earlier cars to cover this that involved fitting a piece of plastic between the cable and the bar. I followed this about 6 years ago. Now the door unlocks every time on the fob. This was on the first rave disc I had but not the latest one.
