    Just replaced the subwoofer today and i think i may have banged the central locking pump because now when i unlock the car instead of it whining for about 2 seconds, it carries on for about 15 seconds, everything locks and unlocks fine. any ideas?
    Just poly bushed the dogbone and that was a much easier job than fitting that stupid sub

    You have a air leak for the pump, the pump needs a certain pressure to reach before it locks, with the leaks its just takes longer
