Have had the fairly common drivers door bouncing back when you go to shut it.
I have removed the door lock and given it a good soak in WD40 and cleaned it and greased it up but it still doesn't spring down to the fully open position.
It appears that some of the rubber coating of the latch is damaged and may have come off or is catching on something internally.
As a temp fix, I have lowered the stricker plate so that it forces the latch further down when being opened but is only a temp fix.
A new lock is approx £140 from TPS.
Has anyone taken the lock mechanism apart and sucsessfully cleaned and fixed this or similar issues?
My worry is if I strip it down, the thing will explode with springs and pins flying everywhere
