I Can't imagine how you took apart those 2 little motors inside the locking module,
They are soldered on the printed board first of all.
Secondly, it very looks like they are not meant to be fiddling around with.
Just buy a new EXPENSIVE module (--- tipical Ford solution).
I am really curious how did you managed to take those electric motors appart.
Just as a heads up to you all who have this motor! I had a similar issue, I removed the fuse and reinserted in the wrong place! so the other doors would lock but not the rear offside. It had me scratching my head, and I eventually found it out!
I would have been scratching my head for a long enough time as I never realised that each door is fused!
So if you do have this issue, check the door fuse before worrying about anything else!
I seem to have exactly the same problem. The door manual lock lever just moves a little, but fails to 'throw' the lock over either to lock or open. An earlier suggestion was to soak the central locking unit with WD40. Is the central locking unit in this case attached directly to the door latch mechanism? or is it elsewhere? If the problem is down to these small motors, then is it possible to blow air through them to get the dust cleared? I really don't want to have to fit new units as I note that the front passenger door is starting to show the same problem.
Any guidance on this would be gratefully received.
This is the rare case when WD40 will not help. I sent this descripton two years ago, maybe helps:
I cannot recall exactly how I removed the door lock module, however it was not too tricky.
You should know that the module is built together a plastic mount which holds the external door handle.
So, you need to dismount the external handler. There is a hole on the edge of the door, above the 3 screws of door lock mechanism. A plastic cap covers it. If you remove the cap you can release the smaller, fix part of the handle by screwing off the screw in the hole.
After the removal the fix part, you can unlock and probably completely remove the moving part of the handle. Then the door lock module should come out.
I hope this is correct the way of removal and my answer will help you. Good luck!
If you remove the module the disassembly is easy. After removal some screws the case can be opened. You will the small motor. It seems soldered however it isn't. It has sliding contacts. It can be lifted and removed. (at least mine was like this).
The tricky part is the motor disassembly. The metal case has two small locks which holds the plastic back of the motor. You have to blend those locks to release the plastic part. The gaps between the commutators shall be cleaned.
Thanks for the info, Sakos. And for the froody link as well. I assume that the Neato motors are at least similar to the Mondeo ones and the same approach should be taken. Due to external pressures I shall have to put the fix on hold for a few weeks, but I'll get back to it then and expect great success - or a visit to a local scrap yard!!
