MX5 - Can anyone help?

Hi guys,

there is an issue of the passenger door not locking.

You try and lock it from the inside and the slider wont slide. When you try and lock from the outside the key turns but not all the way like it does when it locks, probably about just over half the way it should.

Is this a common issue? or has anyone had this happen before?

Any advice apreciated.

J

Pop the door card off. Check the spring in the mechanism. It's a common mx5 fault. Along with the windows winding up very slowly. For some reason stuff within the door seems to age badly. Grease all the links while you're there.
