Re: drivers inside door lock

Ok I haven't had any problems with the lock for ages then it has gone again. I haven't been on here for months don't know where the time has gone! Inland revenue demanding my time for accounts though just now!!

Right, just in case anyone can help, lock went again, for 3 days I had to open window to open drivers door from outside, today is the first chance that we've had to try to sort it - we were able to lift up the lock to see the slider and sure enough it was down at the bottom (childlocked) moved it up but couldn't push the pin back in so I've sprayed it with GT85 and we have put it back together again and its working.

any idea's on how to push the pin back in as it seems to be solid or can I just leave it be?

Thanks for help undoing it, took about 30 minutes, cost nothing!!

I'm a happy bunny again now.

Re: drivers inside door lock

I have the problem too - internal door handle not operating due to hidden child lock activating. Took door panel off initially, and pushed the non-pinned switch back up.
Now... it's happened again - EASY SOLUTION..... no need to remove door panel, I made myself a re-set 'tool' from a piece of fencing wire: Bend one end 90 degrees, about 7mm in length and form a looped 'handle' at the other end, to form total length of about 17cm. This way it is a simple job to reach down between the door frame and lock, then rotate and pull back to re-set the lock position. I am going to undo the three Torx screws, and put some two part chemical metal in the gap to solve permanently when I get the chance though -which I am sure will work.
However, that damn door locking buzz on the passenger door is puzzling me still....

Re: drivers inside door lock

Here is a re-post off my fix to the self setting child lock problem.

I wanted to remove the chance of it happening again so having measured up I held the lock out off the way then drilled a 20mm hole (using a step drill). This allowed me to drill a pilot hole in the child lock slider and put a self tapper in to lock it in the open position.

The reason for such a large hole was that after cleaning it up and treating the bare metal I then plugged it with a 20mm blind grommet.

The finished result looks like it may have been factory fitted.

I got fed up with mine going all to pot so I just bought a new one and hey presto!! It's been hassle free for the last couple month.
