    Guys,

    Hopefully you can help here

    My drivers door sometimes will not close properly to which I think is a mechanism fault with the lock

    When I go to close the door, it clunks off the latch and wont close. What I have to do is pull the outside handle again and then it usually closes but not all the time :(

    Anyone experienced a similar problem?

    Do I have to replace the lock?

    Thanks!

    sounds like its the latch. I'd spray WD40 into the latch part and work it back and forward and see if it free's off, if not you could be looking at a new one.

    As above, I'd use some WD40 onto the latch area and try and clean it out.
