51 Plate VW Bora Central Locking
My 1.9 tdi VW Bora has been a great car but over time the central locking is bit by bit failing.
First the front passenger side door stopped popping up ( much to the wifes annoyance ), then the rear passenger door did the same and to cap it all my front door sometimes pops up but mostly doesnt work at all now. The passenger side door just simply doesnt work whatever I try.
If you try and open the handles from inside they wont work either. I did take off the passenger front inside trim off to see if I could see whats up but quite frankly I have not got a clue.
I now resort to opening my front door with a key 75% of the time and then getting in and pulling the black plastic passenger side ( with trim hanging off ) to get the wife in. My 3 1/2 year old just scrambles over my front seats to jump into his car seat in the back. All very frustrating.
I took it to my trusted ( cheap ) local garage but they wont touch it, recommending an alarm specialist ?
I dont have bags of dosh at my disposal and the local VW dealership just frowned and tutted and said it could need a new central locking system at worst but wouldnt know without looking at it. ( They quoted a ridiculous "worse case scenario" price for a new central locking system and I dont like using dealerships anyway due to high costs).
I am now left with a working boot and an occasional working front drivers side door.
I live in Maidstone Kent.
Any advice please ?
