Alfa 159 drivers door locking mechanism
My 159 door won't open on the front drivers side. The last time I opened the door it sounded different, as though something had snapped or fallen off. It still opens from the inside and the central locking still works. I've taken the door card off and tried to see which screws to remove to gain access to the lock. The aluminium plate still seems to be held centrally to the door. All I can see is the window motor which I began to loosen until it started to twist as though it was under tension. Needless to say the door is now back in one piece as I don't want springs and **** all over my drive. Anyone got any suggestions as to how to gain access to this part so I can try and repair it. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers.
