Re: drivers inside door lock

well done,
as ive said in previous posts it is possible todo without removing door card with a little bit of jiggling about.

ive thought about glueing a plate over the pin next time it comes out. any1 tried that?

This will expose the small pin that needs knocking back in and the black plastic slider that has had the bit that should stick thru the body ground off just compare with rear door to see what im on about
This again was slide up into up into unlock position
Everything relocated and screws back in works find no problems
If u want u can strip the door card off but not really needed

If it happens again thinking of glueing the child lock open or will drill doorframe to allow aaccess to slider like the rear door

Cheers to the folks that replied and also a seach on door locks revealed threads that had covered this already
Thanks folk hate to think what nissan would have ssid was wrong plus the cost

I presume it's this bit/pin that's causing the dams problem

Re: drivers inside door lock

Yeah that causes the buzzing problems the little 2mm pin

Then the black half moon slide is what causes the inner door lock issue its the child lock

Guess u managed to fix it

Re: drivers inside door lock

Try reading this may be u didn't lift the lock high enough or the pin may have fell out

Re: drivers inside door lock

Hi

Without wanting to cover old ground and previous posts - the door handle on my driver's door isn't opening the door, outside handle works.

I have undone the lock - the child-lock switch is pretty stiff - if I force it up it makes no difference but I can feel that it is somehow stopping the cable/mechanism working - perhaps the whole catch unit is past repair - or does a good squirt of WD-40 or contact cleaner get things moving again?

All help gladly received.

Re: drivers inside door lock

Gent - sorry to post again.

I've followed this guide and the other on this topic.

The internal driver's door handle isn't working.

I bought and fitted a new Drivers Door Lock Mechanism - because the child lock switch was in the right place and I could feel the mechanicals inside the door lock trying to work but not working the catch.

Horror - the new door mechanism worked once then also stopped - I tried it when it was in pieces during fitting , assembled everything and now it's exactly the same as with the original lock mechanism - which leads me to believe it must be the electronics .?

fwiw - I followed the auto window close fix - mine would auto-open but not auto-close - now it's fine - but perhaps I should do a full ECU reset .?

Again - any help most welcome, thanks

Re: drivers inside door lock

OK - I'm chatting with myself here - but for completeness and to update the thread.

The previous owner has snapped the lug off the handle - and made a decent fix by cutting a slot in the plastic body of the handle....

....*but* the cable didn't return quite far enough - so the mechanism didn't fully move up and down when the door was locked & unlocked.....

.....giving the same symptoms of the problem thread - but a different cause.

New handle (£75 from Nissan, £65 from eBay BuyItNow seller, £35 eBay auction) - Fixed.

Re: drivers inside door lock

Hi all

I'm really glad I found these posts, I joined the forum ages ago and then didn't have the time to read it unless I had a dire problem.

I have had exactly the same problem but thankfully it comes and goes so I haven't got around to doing anything about it yet. Nissan told me I needed a new lock but our local dealer is so bad that they haven't yet got around to giving me a price and I dont think they will now as that was about a year ago.

I did try to source a replacement lock from the scrapyards but the "gentlemen" there were less than helpful - very patronising, was I sure thats what it was etc - told me the wire had snapped - I told then it hadn't unless Harry Potter was fixing it!

I plan to have a look without taking the door apart if I can, some seemed to have managed it and patience is one thing that I do have.

Thanks again

Angela
