Sorry, I know it's been asked a hundred times before (at least!) but the car has started to refuse to unlock the rear passenger door off the fob. It'll unlock from inside and it always locks from the central locking. Is this the door control module? It's a 2009 S4 Avant. Don't want to buy a part that doesn't fix it!! Does anything need coding or is it a simple fix?

Its a new door lock job. Pretty straight forward to change takes no more than an hour. They cost around £99 from the dealer.

Thanks, Looking on eBay there are 'door lock actuators' for about £35. Anyone tried these? Are these what I need? Would prefer £35 to £99!!!!
