"93 Driver"s next Door Won"t Lock
I have actually the problem that the driver"s next door lock won"t lock either with the vital or the knob. It provided to work just fine. I took it out and also lubed it, no help. Ns think it"s simply worn out, 250k and also 22 years locking and unlocking the door deserve to do that. Is there anyone the rebuilds these?

Often the metal rod the activates the lock bends just enough to not work. A slim rebending deserve to solve that problem. It is also feasible you have actually rust in the system or the latch is worn out.

Mine do the same thing, and also the finest I have the right to tell is, the rod end that actually holds the rod has slack, which method the pole doesn"t have full travel. Might not be your problem, just another thing come look for.
