    Hi guys,

    looking for some advice please,

    i have stripped down both front doors on my vert as most of the clips were broken or come unstick etc etc. ( basically pretty poo )

    I have re-stuck all relevant bits on the inside of the door card, and refitted with all new clips as well.

    Only problem is the drivers door will now not lock remotely. If i use the key in the lock it will work fine and lock all the doors and boot.

    but as soon as i try it remotely it will lock the passenger door and boot but not the drivers.

    i have not done any work on the locks etc but cant work out why it is messing about now.

    i would love to sort this without removing the door card again as i know when i do it will be in the same state as when i removed it in the 1st place.

    thanks

    Does the door pull and pin work freely? They could have got jammed when you refitted the door card

    yep, it moves freely,

    i have taken the shroud out of the top of the door car and i can push and pull it freely by hand and also using the key in the lock this way to is still ok.
