Finally fixed my central locking

Just thought i'd put this here for anyone who has central locking that unlocks itself all the time. Seems to be a common problem.

My locks unlocked itself, and i noticed that the left front lock was getting stuck a bit, and causing it to unlock.
So after a few months i got off my ass and pulled the front left door trim off.

When playing with the lock it made a rattle noise. As it turned out the lock motor bolts had come loose. (these are located at back bottom corner of my door in my ea).
The bolts are hard to reach, but after pissfarting around i managed to get a spanner(10mm i think) in there and tighten them as much as i could. put the trim back on, and there u have it. Locks workin like new. :)
So after sussing out which lock may be causing the problem, just do as above.

If that dont work, i dont know. Try a car electrician :)
