Help Wanted

Guys:

Ashamed to admit it but...................
I let some "handwash" car jockeys pressure clean my Rangie and then rub-
it-all-over :-(

Since this time, all the friggin' central locking is screwed.

1. Remote locking/unlocking does not affect the PSF door (stays locked-up
tight)
2. Raising/lowering the DSF locking tab only unlocks the 2 rear-doors and
not the PSF.
3.Raising/Lowering the PSF locking tab unlock/locks ALL doors.

Question:
Have they forced too much water thru my orifice :-)
If I remove the inside door panels and mop-up will this fix my problems?


H-E-L-P

Dan.

Re: Help Wanted

Were they door to door guys?

If so I'd check your alarm works ok - Just a thought.

Sounds a bit way out but it could be they were masquerading as car cleaners
in order to set your car up for a 'cherry pick' in the dead of night.


I had a problem with my Freelander 2 weeks ago - pass window was smashed and
nav system nicked - alarm light was still flashing so the sensors must have
been dissabled somehow.

Re: Help Wanted - central locking broken

Hi & thanks for the reply.

No, it was a pucker permanent car wash (is always very busy).

I'm just worried that they have inadvertantly buggered my car's central
locking. I saw an article that warned against "power-washing" as water
can be pushed past the seals.

Just worrying that it's going to be expensive to get fixed.

Regards,

Dan.
