1998 Megane Lock change

Below is a PM I have just recieved from a new member. Any help appreciated.

Hope you can help
I've not done a lock change on my Megane, erm. I will post this for you in the right place then some members should be able to help you with your problem. You might need to reply a few times to give them more details.

I will post it in the Ask the Experts section under bodywork.

The locks may not be inter-changeable due to their rotation direction but in some cases it is possible to interchange the internal levers, etc. I suggest you check the duff lock first as it is possible its linkage may have become disconnected.
Time to strip the door card for a looksee - me thinks
