Re: central locking

it should just be bolted in? loosen the bolts, crack a couple of hissy fits in the process... cut your hand a few times, wriggle it around, hit the door with closed fists every now and again... and it should come out. there isnt a 'how-to' on this one... just a lot of agrivation :) good luck!

Re: central locking

If not bolted then its riveted in , you need to drill out the rivets or use small grinder
