I have tried cleaning the solenoid and spraying it with WD40 but this seems to have no effect and my problem still remains.
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.
