Focus Mk2 Driver Door Lock Fix

Fixing a door lock that will not operate the lock at all.

Posted by Taikun on Jun 09 2014 12:45 PM

I´m posting this for informational purposes:

 

I own a mk2 station wagon with "Comfort pack". The other day i noticed that the drivers door wouldn´t keep the car locked, with or without the key in proximity, the darned thing would always unlock!

 

First i tested the electronics - thought that perhaps the keyless entry would be shorting...  but no...

 

Then i got a second opinion, took the car to a specialized electrician who confirmed my suspicions.

 

So i took the door apart - and took out the lock. So it turns ou to be a small spring on the latch which wasn´t doing it´s job properly. In the enclosed picture i have pointed ou the spring in red. All i had to do was to "open" the spring arms a little, (be careful with the load) and put it back together!! Working like a charm now!
