Door Locks

PostPost by: Quart Meg Miles » Mon Dec 03, 2012 12:15 pm

RHS Door Lock for Type 26 on Ebay, closing date 5 Dec 2012. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251192561361
It is an A60/Oxford part (possibly 1100 too?) and identical to picture earlier in this thread. Thanks Seth Kennedy.

The piece you show doesn't look all that complicated. I'm assumming the one you have is broken. If so you have a reference and I would consider making one.

Is this in the right thread, Kurt? Doesn't make sense to me and note that the posts prior to mine were in 2007 or earlier.

You're right Meg. Didn't look at the dates on the previous posts...just the problem. I hope to learn!

It would appear that my drivers side latch which has the button standing out farther than the passenger side may be suspect. If these are prone to coming apart how hard are they to repair or should I just be looking for a replacement?
