1996 Alize Tailgate Lock Barrel
Hi all, first post so be gentle.
Have tried a search of site but cant find an answer to my problem.
I have just bought the above model of espace and am having problems with the tailgate lock. The central locking mechanism has been taken off and the white plastic bit which contains the locking barel is not attached to any part of the vehicle and i cant understand how it clips in to the tailgate.
When i put it back in place all that happens is when you put in the key in to lock it, it pushes the whole mechanism into the tailgate and therefore you cannot turn it to push down the rod mechanism.
Haynes manual is not very clear can anyone shed any light on this for me? Im not bothered about the central locking i just want to be able to lock the tailgate.
