Intermittent zip noise

Recommended Posts

So on my 2007 Fiesta Climate whenever the engine is off and doors unlocked, (say if I've just parked up and switched off) there's an irritating zip sound coming from the door locks as if I'm repeatedly pressing the lock/unlock button on the key. 

I've only just got my car back from a bodywork repair place after an incident involving a builder denting the side panel and he noticed this sound as well and mentioned something called a "sonar" or similar term that needs replacing?

Where is this located in the car?

I think the word would have been ' solenoid' . part of the central locking inside the door - would need the interior panel removing from door.

Ah that's it I think! I couldn't remember what the guy said but it makes sense if its linked with the central locking.

How easy is it to replace? And can you get the part cheap?
