They destroyed the lock trying to prize it apart with a bearing puller.

If your guys have trouble finding a replacement new part the scenic lock is indentical. Apparently the dialogys software does not make it easy to find the part number on the laguna..
The fitter did warn me about the lock / wiper motor on the window. Luckily that came off but the wiper arm didn't, as you say wrong metals/bad engineering! It had to be butchered off! Hence 40 extra

Got to go back tonight as the wiper is making a knocking noise, like its under stress.
