Re: Door locks
If the locks appear to be totally jammed it's often down to the Bowden cable which connects the inside handle to the lock itself, I had precisely this symptom after replacing the window mech.
It seems critical to position this cable in just the right place, even though there is no real guide as to where it should lay. I did mine by trial error, just fitting the door card into place and then trying EVERYTHING at EVERY stage of refit. ( After a few fruitless hours wasted looking at the locks ! )
If you have had the door card from the offending door off recently I'm pretty sure that repositioning the Bowden cable will fix everything.
As above the loose connector will be for the light underneath the door.
Have you seen the Lincolnshire Lounge ? Don't stay off the radar, come on in and have a look !
