I'm having an issue with the drivers door on my Megane. It opens/closes fine but when you unlock the car you can here the central locking motor making a strange noise like it is struggling. It's been doing it on and off for 3 years but since the cold snap around Christmas its been doing it every time I unlock the door. If the doors open and you lock/unlock it doesn't make this noise. I'm thinking that the lock may just need a little lubrication, having tried this there is no difference. Do I need to strip the door and remove the lock to lubricate it, or just wiggling the thing about in-situ and being more patient will help?
