Hi

Just joined and can't seem to find my problem in your problem - in your forum. I'm probably not searching right!

Hopefully you can help please.

I have a 1994 Granada Scorpio 2.0i auto. My doors lock but take about 10-15 mins to unlock with lots of jiggling (and cursing). Same with spare key and does both side. (Hatch just doesnt lock or unlock with a key and hasnt since i got it - made a bit worse by an unfortunately reverse argument with a light pole)

Anyway, i have been doing a bit of research and come across Door Lock repair Kits. Firstly are they any good?

Secondly, i have come across several sites which say that Door Lock Barrels for most fords from this time are built the same and an Escort will fit a Granada, Mondeo, Sierra etc. Is this true? Could i just get a lock barrel from an Escort or Mondeo and fit it? And thirdly, if so, I should be able to buy a lock repair kit for an Escort which is about half the price of the Granada on ebay?

Any help, advice would be appreciated especially if it saves me money!

many thanks in advance

the locks are prone to tumbler wear...they can be refurbished and still work of the same key...u would need to remove and send with a key to be rebuilt...cost would be 15 per lock + 5 post to return them
