Chuffed lock sorted

Post by fuerte » Tue Sep 24, 2019 3:22 pm

Took my car to the garage today and he took drivers side jammed barrel out and was able to pick broken bits out so it now works.
I didnt have to resort to using my spare set so that is one more probe door lock still in circulation.
If you have jammed locks they can be saved just minus the cover which is workable.
So chuffed.
Now in an ideal world would like to see Spear of Destiny tonight in Swindon but too tired.But I cant have it all and no reason to complain.
Whats that thunder or the sound of you all falling off your chairs with my new found positivity.!!!!

Well done, at least you have someone at that garage who can fix things, rather than replace with 'new' every time.

If the plastic bits in the lock barrels have broken off, in heavy rain, the rain will get in and run down the barrel causing the doors to lock/unlock and alarm to go off.

I have been using a bit of magic tape for the time being, to keep the rain out.

Thanks for the tip.I did run my old probe for years after the plastic broke and it was ok.I have sprayed gt85 in the lock a trick I have done for 3 years as this probes lock always froze badly.It is water repellant I believe.
Worst case scenario I have the locks off the old probe if the plastic is in one.
Guess I will have to hope for the best.Certainly had enough rain this week.
Good luck with yours.I am sure you will find a more long term solution.When an auto electrician worked on my car one job he did was fit a different window and door lock control.I remember he sprayed it with a special spray to protect electrics because I drive with my window open and the rain dribbles on that part.Sorry dont know what it was called.
