locking worries

Hey Guys,
My 1998 mk1 clio has remote central locking and has worked fine when i bought the car 8 months ago, however the passenger door has decided not to work with the remote central locking and can only be opened by using the key, (the car has not got central locking when used with the key), but very rarely the door will lock with the other doors but not unlock at all. HAve you got any suggestions what the problem is and is it an expensive, complicated fix?

Thankyou, your replies are much appreciated

Hi its usually the central locking motor that fails/sticks.Its part of the door catch assembly an easy repair-a trip to your local scrap yard for the part would be the cheapest option

I've the same problem, but it started in both doors at the same time. Would it be just a coincidence or something else?
