Smile Just fixed my faulty solenoid

Thanks to this thread I've finally had the inspiration to getting around to fixing a faulty solenoid on my own passenger side rear door, (Megane Scenic 99 T reg). I haven't gotten around to it before because it's not really been a priority as it's always unlocked fine by pulling the button up and there are so many other things I've been needing to do to get it through the MOT in a few days.

It's nice to not have to reach around to pull the button anymore though. All it took was a few squirts of good old WD40 and 10 mins of pulling an pushing the solenoid in and out until it was free enough to do it under its own steam. Did the same to the other side when I repaired the lock a while ago so I thought the same might work on that side too and it did. :-)

I love it when a plan comes together. :-D
