i think they did have central locking but not remote central locking

easiest way to find out it to remove the door card to see if there is a motor in there.

even if you had a manual for the car it will not really tell you as they cover a lot of models with diffrent spec

i had similar & found it was a vaccuume hose on the front of the engine had split.

gethave a look to see if it's a hose gone.

a small family run garage done mine for £200. it was a sod of a job to do

as i was gonna do myself roadside but weather was against me so garage done & and im glad they did as the mech said he hated doing it

as it was a reals sod to do as limited space to get the part on & off .

best of luck m8.

In Topic: Spark Plug Removal Problems?

should change spark plugs every 30k or 3 yrs from memory.

i woulkd soak them on a good penetrating oilthen use a good quality 

socket as already mentioned (sykes pikavant).

if your not confident to do it then take to a small local garage & i am  sure they will help you.

maybe a good idea to get the engine hot then try loostening the plugs ??


keep us posted m8
