Re: Megane 2001 passenger door doesn't unlock
A good nigh of sleep helped a lot. Now I have two spare locks for the rear doors, 40 Euro burned... The good thing is I have located a donor car at the scrapyard, an identical Megane hatchback for other spare parts.
Always a silver lining.
And the locks will sell on
For future when you need a "loose" fit, using a self locking nut works.
Or two nuts locked together
Or thread lock
Or crimping the thread with a pair of pliers and tightening the nut onto the bad thread.
Use the last two with common sense, not on safety critical parts
Glad you fixed it.
