Re: Door Locks

sounds like same problem .
I had to get really serious with the second lock and beat it to hell and back until it simply broke apart!
once i was in took all the broken bits out of the door skin and fitted new one.
if they are the same I used a quarter inch chisel hittng through the white plastic on the first one.
but the other was much harder.
once I got over the fear of breaking somthing else I just went for it.
I'm no mechanic and would not recomend doing it my way, but when all else fails?

Lightbulb Re: Door Locks

Well, after drowning it with WD-40 yesterday, i poked a long thin flat head screwdriver in the lock, then as I was pushing on to it, the door randomly opened!

I have no idea how or what I pushed on but I think the WD helped abit, so then was just the case of replacing the part.

If anyone still stuck, try the WD-40 on it, be generous and get it everywhere, then leave it over night hope this helps!!
