Alfa 147 door won't close - when hot!
There is an old thread about this on here however there were no real answers to the problem, so I thought I would start a fresh thread 5years on..
Recently I've been having problems shutting the passenger door. Upon inspection the latch is not locking in place. Every time this has happened the car has been in the sun. I've tried WD40 and silicone spray, they don't seem to help.
So to prove a point that it is heat related I got a canister of air used for cleaning out computers, if you turn them upside down and spray you get a powerful jet of freezing cold white stuff. I gave the latch/general area a good spray to cool it down and hey presto the door shut fine!
I now carry an air-duster around with me!
What a crazy problem, I'm not sure if it's worth getting the lock/latch replaced as it sounds more of a design fault than anything else.
