central locking

Postby rob/d » Sun 19.04.2015, 07:56

Always been a bit hit and miss but now broken central locking actuator on drivers side .
All took apart and carefully smashed open the plastic gearbox on the mechanism to reveal a broken cog inside .
Panicked a bit because A ,it looks expensive and B , where would i get one from ?
Ten minutes on the web and it is a cheap readily available part .
Question .
Do i order this from U.S. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Power-Door-Lo ... 56562de4bf ?
Is there a G.B option similar price ?
Thanks .

Pictures to follow .

Just a thought: check the electrics. The eBay one is a 2 pin connection, yours may be 5 for the remote locking.
I haven't looked at wiring diagram so may well be way off beam.

Good call but off beam methinks... Section MJ Page 24 shows sketch of 2 way housing for CDL motor and Wiring Diag sheet 20 shows 2 wire connectors for both SE & S2 but that's all theory... in practice having the defective one in front of you is best guide to how many wires it has.

I'm finding the Wiring Diags are just a guide as I'm fitting a new radio, ahem, :banghead: trying to fit a new radio with Nokia hands free car kit (that's the tricky bit) and finding my wiring in very late SE is part SE & part S2 on some of the plug connected bits of loom - probably bits in the GM parts bin had changed in. Decided time spent doing a red-line drawing might save me time in the future..

Yeah, bit pricey but at least it's new so guess that's the UK street price for GM part. Some breakers put iffy used one on ebay and think if they put 'Lotus Elan' and 'rare' on the description they can ask twice the GM new price!
