Re: spinning ulysee locks

Funny you should mention spinning locks I get the problem on the front locks and now this past week the boot has done it.I squirt ww40 into the barrel and it appears to free something off inside and they work again.I assume some spring which engages the barrel with the key profile sticks. Also occasionally a rear door doesnt lock or unlock with the others and a similar soaking up every oriface near the lock and door tab seems to improve matters.

Re: spinning ulysee locks

Hi, the link given earlier by Lanciak69 is a very good one. When we bought our Ulysse and started listing the things that needed attention, spinning locks was high on the list ( the novelty of guessing how long it would take to get in the car each morning was wearing off ). I posted a question as you have and Lanciak69 came to the rescue with the link to Maxyboy. No they are not cheap....but they do the job, and when fitted, give that fraction of a seconds silence before the wife finds something else wrong.
Happy motoring!
