I tried this - and unfortunately it didn't work - I could just (with a bit of imagination) feel a slight click as the barrel went past the vertical - asif something was trying to catch in place to hold everything still - but failed. Same now with boot lock - so I only have the passenger door lock available to me - and tonight this turned 3 or four times before sticking and letting me unlock.

Please - is there any way of lubricating / repairing whatever mechanism there is to enable me to unlock / lock reliably???

Oh - I also removed IR sensor - its dry as a bone in there and all contacts look clean and shiny - so its not going to be a simple fix!!!
