Well I managed to get part of the door panel off and had a look. The door locks and unlocks fine with the blade key but it was very stiff to start with. So I applied copious amounts of wd40 everywhere and worked the lock back and forth until it was much easier in use. However this did not solve the central locking issue? I can feel the solenoid trying to kick in and its stronger on locking than unlocking and sometimes it even locks, but its rare. So I've sprayed some 3-1 in there and hope it loosens itself up in the next few weeks? If it doesn't I guess i'm looking at replacing the solenoid assembly?
