Re: Door Locks

after speaking to seward renault portsmouth I was horrified that they were qouting 150 per door to get them open and fit new locks.
then the parts were at least 65+ per door for the locks and he was not sure if the soliniod came with it, if not they were 65+ each.
so off to the breakers, day off work and get me a door lock. took one out of a basic clio with no soliniod first, then spotted a clio with central locking so decided to attack that with the door shut to practice how i was going to get the one out of the car at home.
could not get it out unless the door is open.
so 10 lighter home to attack the car.
handle off (which i had practised at the breakers) hammer and chisel, one good thump into the locks plastic parts and I'm in.
40 mins job done.
works a treat, off in a mo to get the other side.
Moral:- if not sure how to, then to the breakers practise on theres!
