    ok guys.. quick one for you...

    unlocked the car this morning to find the passenger door will not unlock off the central locking... if its unlocked it will lock fine..

    is there a simple answer or is going to be a replacement central locking motor...

    This happens sometimes to mine on the passenger side too....I would say its a sticky latch that needs replacing as you said.

    By the way, it only ever happens on my one when its cold outside....

    i wish it was just being sticky... just won't open the door at all... but found this place in london, i used to live near there... it looks brill... i think my credit card will be getting a bashing when i go over there, not only is the latch i need a G bmw bit its £10 cheaper..

    i can also see me picking up a performance air filter, and a black grille set for the front....

    Happy days..
