Re: Laguna 2 door latch not engaging

Would say thats your locking mechanism ,as it should hold on first close and second close,if it doesnt hold on first close,its had it ,,,,, .The part that the striker plate(the door pillar part)hits as it closes it turns anticlockwise and a lever (for want of a better word)situated in the door locking mechanism moves up,this holds the door catch in position,,you could try oiling it,but normally the spring that lifts this part up has weakened and the most sensible cure is a new/second hand locking mechanism,the reason I say sensible if it does open as you are driving it could cause an accident or rip the door pillar strap off the door pillar,the part that stops the door opening to much,then the door can hit the wing and put a nice crease down the door skin,if this happens then its taking the connection block off the door to pillar ,a piece of metal with a nut welded to the metal ,fed up the inside (its only a small hole to feed the plate through)to reattach the strap then welded back in place,, OUCH

Re: Laguna 2 door latch not engaging

Have just tried door striker plate and there is no adjustment possible. lock mechanism works perfectly using a screwdriver, but will still only shut one in 10 times of trying. Just ordered a replacement mechanism off you know where as it is the only thing that can be at fault. Have fingers and toes crossed!
