Good evening, my boot central locking spacked out today, all
I could hear was a whirring noise when the car was locked/opened and I had to
lock it with the key to secure the boot.

After further investigation today I removed the Solenoid unit that opens the
lock etc and striped it down to find that the spindle from the gear box had
twisted and snapped.

So, unless I can make a new shaft I guess its a new motor.If any of you kind people have or know anyone who has one of these for sale please let me know.Best Regards
Rob.

Ok. Might want to check there's nothing else wrong when you putthe new oneback in so the same thing doesn't happen again. The central locking controller or sensors may not be set up right.

Yea will do, it may be just wear and tear as the weakest point that broke was made from nylon.
I will check to see that the linkage bar to the lock mech is not too tight and oil the lock mech as well.

I will update tomorrow once sorted.

Cheers
Rob.

Wow! She's nice. It's the 2001 to 2005 model, quite high spec by the looks of it with front fogs, roof racketc. Looks well looked after!

Cheers mate, the car is the LE model; Air Con etc.
Paid £1k for her on Gumtree, 47K on clock when bought, 49 now and full dealer service history, spare key and manual etc.
Enjoyable drive, not as fun as my Clio Sport but that was built for purpose - had my dickhead phase now enjoying the comfort of the Rio.
