Central locking drivers door

Hey,

Time for a question from me (btw.. you guys are great).

Just recently i've had an issue with the Central locking on the drivers door. Before I rip the door card off and destroy clips etc...

If you lock the door with the key, all doors, boot, and fuel cover lock.

If I lock using the passenger door, all lock except the drivers door.

I'm suspecting its the lock motor on the drivers door. Is this something that is easily changed and without cost?

On a side note.. non digital clock.. fitting a OBC.. hard work?

J.

Yes... i'm a total car nut! Why else would I upgrade my mower to rev to twice its standard rpm!

What you say about the drive motor on the driver's lock makes sense, since the key and cylinder move the lock when your at that door.

Actuator, situated on top of the lock, you have to take the door card off, if your gentle you should'nt break any clips!!, the actuator is on top of the lock mechanism once removed you can take it apart fill it up with silicone grease,put it back together and plug the wiring back in , test it before you put it back on the lock, if it does'nt work ( you will hear it ) its fried ,new one or 2nd hand one required.
