    Central locking failed again .

    I sorted this a couple of weeks ago . The pipe had come off . Just locked the car and itís come off again . Iíve noticed recently the window hits something on the way down . So off comes the door card again tomorrow to get this sorted. I wanted to go to killarton house tomorrow, to the car show , but I canít go unless I get this sorted, as the passenger door wonít lock .



    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    Yes Jon . Obviously the passenger door stays unlocked, I donít have a key for that side , another issue I have to sort out . Iíve just put the window down and you can hear it hitting something, it can only be hitting the pump surely?, thereís nothing else there to make that sort of noise . I will remove the door card tomorrow morning so I can see whatís going on . Whatever is happening itís definitely hitting the pump tube otherwise it wouldnít keep pulling it away from the pump .

    Ah the key doesn't work got you. Yeah Sounds Like The Window Is Pulling the pipe off the connection should be an easy fix.

    Thatís what I thought last time bud . We just reconnected it and all was well . But as I said itís hitting something even when the pipe is off . I will take a look tomorrow. The pump may have moved off of its fixing point ?.

    All sorted. Although the mechanism was fine before hand and there wasnít any snags , it appears that when the car went in for paint and the door handle parts were replaced , they put the wire the wrong side of the sliding mechanism. Hence it was hitting it on the way down and the pipe , eventually pulling the pipe away from the pump .
