Drivers side door

The drivers side door would not unlock 2 times out of 5 tries then 3 times. When the door opened I took the door card off give the lock a good oiling worked every time put it back together would not open.

Managed to get a second hand lock mechanism off ebay now OK.

Cannot see anything wrong with old lock but solonoid must be sticking.

Door card came off easy, unhook inside door handle cable, the lever from the outside door handle is clipped to the lock mech with a plastic clip then undo three screws to remove lock, unplug cable. Reassemble in reverse order. Total time 20 minutes.

Nice to hear it is so simple to work on. Fortunately mine has not yet needed such attention I know the day will come.
Thanks for let us know about it.

My drivers door seems to have 'dropped' a little.

Anyone got any idea how I would resolve this?

I have no idea.

Get a piece of 4x 4 wood or similar and stick it on a trolly jack.Stick it under your door and jack it up until its enough to get rid of your problem.

Its how its done in many factorys crude but very effective.

Oh right, cheers - shouldnt there be something to tighten up or something?

Otherwise when I remove the jack it will fall again?!

No need to undo anything.Just jack it enough to move the door slightly past where you want it.When you let the pressure off the jack the door should sit where you want it.
Dont jack on the door skin,but as close to it as possible with the door as near to closed as you can work with it.
