    Hi all
    One of my rear passenger doors won't unlock from fob. Can hear it clicking. Will only unlock from inside.
    The anti highjack thing is not on.
    Hope someone can help as been told it will fail an MOT.
    Thanks in advance.
    Paul

    I had the same problem. Took the central locking mechanism out of the door, filled it with WD-40 and no probs since

    Thanks for getting back, is it a matter of taking door cards off and just sparging it around or take mech to bits.
    Many thanks

    I took the inner card off. I couldn't get the whole surround off. A bit fiddly but the secret is to disconnect the door handle. Took an hour to get it apart and 5 minutes to reassemble. Not difficult but good luck.

    There was a youtube video I once saw, drill a small hole in door lock, big enough for a wd40 straw and blast it with the stuff

    Let me see if I can find it
