chrisstevenson Posted June 6, 2006 Share Posted June 6, 2006 Got a problem with the cental locking on my Disco rear door (tailgate), it locks ok from the key fob but when attempting to unlock from the key fob the door lock button only raises about half way, thus wont unlock properly and I have to manually lift the button to unlock the door. I removed the trim panel and took out the actuator, it seemed to be working in that it would shunt the vertical bar up or down as required, but as there was no 'spring' resistance in the actuator I presumed this was the problem so bought a new one - which does exactly the same. When pushing down the button manually it just falls under virtually zero effort, unlike all the other door lock buttons which require a firm push. So now I'm thinking that a spring must have gone somewhere in the mechanism, cant seem to find any springs to check though! I've atached a pic, the hole that I've circled in green is puzzling me, should there be a spring here? If there was then the actuator would operate in a much more positive manner. Any help would be appreciated as I'm stumped and sick of having to climb over the rear seats to unlock the tailgate!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
