The noise is definitely coming from the solenoid so I guess it will need to be replaced?

How hard is this to do and does anyone have a rough idea of how much a new solenoid will cost?

Did my drivers side lock before Christmas. There are two versions, one with a dead lock function. This more expensive version with a six way connector is £115 from you local dealer.

Internally the lock unit has motors to do the work. Although the motors have metal gears the locking rods have plastic gear ways. I guess yours are worn.
