Hi everyone,
I have a problem that has just started a few weeks ago.
While driving my drivers front door opens by itself and its getting annoying. Will be driving and i will hear a click ( like when you normally open the door ) and the door opens. its worst when turning left as the door fly's open. when travelling on the highway i hear it click and its then its open, close it then a few minutes later it does it again then again a while later..it does not do it every time i drive as sometimes i don't drive far, but the further and longer i drive the more it does it.

Can anyone suggest or know what the problem might be.

Regards Shaun

hi mate. i did that 6 months ago as it was gunked up with dry hard grease and it was making it hard to even unlock even with the key. cleanined it real good and it freed up like new..
But i will do what you suggest and open it back up and have another look inside.
The thing is it even with the doors locked while driving it still makes the pop sound like when you normally open and then the door opens by itself.

Also, don't use WD-40 on anything to do with locks. Ask any lock smith and you'll see their eye twitch. Use a silicone spray instead.
WD-40 will attract and collect dirt, dust and grit to the surface and cause further problems in the long term.

thanks fu manchu .. After playing around with it this arvo i figured out that is the problem. when you push the door closed slowly it is supposed to latch in 2 stages, mine is only latching once. Be getting one tomorrow..
