Central Locking

When i turn the key to open the front driver door all the locks go up and down twice. Then return to the lock position? any ideas?

Re: Central Locking

Same thing happens on my ed futura, except passenger side. I'm 90% sure its the solenoid that opperates the lock on one of the other 3 doors. Try and lock it and look to see which door lock button doesn't go down, that's the one that's stuffed. Probably should get mine replaced some time, looks like a bugger of a job too, the fastening screws are on the inside of the door, and i can't see a thing in there. Looks like a dealer job.

Re: Central Locking

The height of your door button may need adjusting.

Re: Central Locking

And how do you adjust the door button height mate?
Would a dumb ass like me be able to do this?

Re: Central Locking

You have to get somthing and leaver the button out, then push it back down , then its just trial and error.

Rather than lever the button out and risking gouging the hell out of it, why not just remove the door trim and do it properly?

My tag line sucks, can I borrow yours?

Re: Central Locking

You need to remove the button to remove the door trim!
I have done this to the button on several occasions, and the buttons are still in very good condition.
Not gouged to hell.

Tell us how you remove your door trims?

Re: Central Locking

1. Remove interior door handle.
2. Remove window winder (If manual)
3. Remove philips head screws on sides of door trim.
4. Ease door trim up, uncliping from the top.
5. Move door trim away from the door slightly, and down to expose the knob.
6. Unscrew knob.

Re: Central Locking

To get the button off without gouging it, simply use masking tape and put a few layers over it, then use a pair of multigrips on the tape. Did it on mine 3 times, and not leave a mark.
