3 out of 4 ain't bad

Guys, discovered that my rear drivers side door isn't locking when I lock the car. Any ideas what I can do? Does anyone know the ins and outs of it?

Does it unlock?

Maybe there is just bad connection to lock itself (inside the door) or on connector from the doors to the car, or in my case fryed motor in lock mechanism - change the whole lock - 80.

Went round this loop checking the locking on the rear door of my 166.
Had to replace the lock mechanism.
Not difficult just look carefully for the door panel fixings as you remove.
Took about an hour.
Cost about 60 from the dealer.

Common fault I understand.

Try grabbing the button inside and moving it up and down manually for a minute to free up the mechanism.... mine's been fine since
