I know this is a bit after the fact but here goes.
When I had the door lock opened (see previous pages) I used lots of WD40,while pulling the door handle open and pushing the lock catch open at the same time.
Then closing the lock catch with my finger (used screwdriver untill i saw how latch worked) and repeating above untill lock worked as normal and applied some grease to finnish.(no need to replace lock)
Did this about 4/6 weeks ago and door is still ok.I would say that lack of lubrication (ooh! err! misses!) in the past had contributed to this problem.
Hope this helps any one searching here in future,cheers Alan
