Door key lock system

Recommended Posts

Boxter 1998 2.5.

Today used the key to open my door, left home and when I tried to lock it (with the key, remote doesn't work anymore) the lock was stiff and didn't want to release the key! I played with it, couldn't unlock the car, luckily roof was down, finally unlock the door from the inside, pulled out the key and headed back home. I put some oil on the lock (bad idea probably) tried to lock unlock, it locked and again key was stocked.played forced a bit and lock did a full turn,,,, released the key after playing a lot with it!  Now I can't lock the car from the console, passenger door locks, trunk lever locks but not the driver's door... I think the lock is broken and it doesn't get electrical signal anymore. What can I do?

Thanks in advance for any help on this!


Found some tutorial's on Bentley and 100 project's book, anyone with some experience or advise? Thanks, Fermin' Laval, QC.
