Re: Renault Clio 2 - Rear Door Lock Problems
for the benefit of anyone currently suffering this problem.here is my two pence worth.
i dont think its always necessary to buy new locks.
a year apart both my clio 2001 rear door locks stopped working.both times i removed the lock and sprayed the mechanism liberally with WD40.i used cotton buds to clean the dust and crap out,as far as possible.then i used cotton buds to get plenty of copper grease in.taking time to work it under the moving parts.both locks have been fine since.
i think what happens is,the springs inside weaken with use.with the ingress of dust eventually building to the point the weak springs cant cope.a good clean and lube is all thats needed most of the time.
Currently in minexplorer's garage:
