The other problem is that I can hear the motor on that same front passenger door when I press the remote central locking... kind of a whoosh sound (that door only).

Any ideas please?
Hi Tazzyk sorry iam not sure about the motor to be honest but when i first got the espace i had a closing and opening problem on the passenger side door and i found the door was loose on the hinges and had dropped a little,all i did was to take the weight up of the door and tighten the torque bolts and hay presto opening and closing OK again,cheers 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.
