Door lock issue - bet no-one has had this one before.....

Right, this is annoying. I've been using the key to open the door on my GTV V6 ph2 as the passenger lock is popping up and down locking both doors (I'm taking the door card off at some point to sort that out). Yesterday after locking the car I noticed the the key hole protector to stop water, etc getting into the lock isn't popping back into place after you use the key. Has anyone had this before, or knows a fix?

Spray the lock with WD40 and insert your key a few times.

I've got that problem, 2 gallons of WD40 later & still no improvement - it's been stuck like that for 3 years & as long as I WD40it liberally in winter the locks don't freeze. But if anyone knows a fix....

They have a little spring on them, chances are the spring is either stuck or broken.

i wrote a post up on this couple months ago,

but i will be honest this is a gtv winter trick,

taking the door cards off will be no help, you need to get both doors in sync,

bassically the door that keeps popping back down is out of sync,

its hard to explain how to get it to work, but you will have to make the one out of sync do what the other door is doing,

try sitting in the car and operating the pin on the problem door
