Remote Central Locking


I've got a 1998 Renault Megane 1.6. I've got RCL but it only works on the 2 rear doors and the boot. Both the front doors have stopped working. I've been told this might be the 'solenoids' and I want to tackle this on my own. Does anyone know a website that I can look at to see wat they look like? I don't get on with Haynes Manuals! Or, if anyone has any other ideas about my problem??

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Before you take the front door cards off,I'd try and have a quick look at the wiring where it goes into the door by the hinges.As the door is opened and closed the wires bend,and after time it can break them.

If all seems well here,then it could very well be the actuators.To access them you'll need to remove the door cards (the interior trim on the door) and this can be a mission in it's self as the cards tend to be stuck on with sealer.I haven't had a card off of a Megane for quite sometime,but hopefully another member can help out more.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Hi Chrli

My rear door lock stopped working last year, a week prior to the MOT, bought a new lock, fitted it, then put the old lock in a container of white spirit overnight to clean it, had a look at it the next day and it worked a treat !!!

it was full of thick oil and grit, with a bit of rust on the springs,

good luck with the lock.
