In Topic: Rear Door locks

24 August 2008 - 07:59 PM


I know of a number of diff cars having the same problem it is a faulty door lock and some times the only way to get the door open is to break the motor/lock itself the pug 406 use to have the same problem and the fiat stilo/188 punto, the cost is more labour than a door lock, and some times you can shock the lock by locking and unlocking but be aware you can over heat the motors and will stop working for a few seconds while they cool down, it would pay to try and give it ago yourself i work in a garage and the past week we have done a few door locks on diff cars with the same fault. it does take abit of time to free/break the lock free without too much damage.

Good luck my friends <_< <_< :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :unsure: :unsure:

I have hurd of a number of things that can cause the same problem you have,

1. is the track rod ends these seem to dry up and can cause i noise

2. is the lower arm ball joints i had mine replaced for the same reasion as your car had and that was when the car was 2 weeks old and had 68miles on the clock

3. i have hurd of many st's having top mount problems they dry up and can cause a creak noise worse when cold.

If i was you just make sure all the bolts every where are tight then start greasing and lubing things up. dont use wd 40, its better to use a silicone spray as its better working in all temps, you may need to undo a few bolts to make sure the spray gets right into it.

Good luck keep us informed Sorry not much help. :(

P.s also check the antiroll bar drop links i know the older shape use to suffer from the same problem.
