Hi clunk, well it did not happen this morning at least so yesterday i gave it Good oil up and this morning no change the key was turning ok but nothing was happening so i checked it in my service books and stuff and there is not mention in it about doing anything other than putting in the emergency key and turning it as normal and this will only give you access through that door that being the passenger side on mine,so i guess there has to be some linkage are something like this that has came off making no connection to the handle mechanism so i will let you know how i get on at the weekend all the best Donald.
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
