Hi,

The driver door lock on my W124 was stuck solid.
I ordered a replacement off the shelf lock and unmatched key from Mercedes.

I took out the door lock. It had a pole at the end with two small "wings".

The new lock was the same, but had another .5cm of pole with a multi-sided "wing" at the end. It wouldn't fit it. I had given them the VIN number.


So....

I took the passenger door lock out and put it in the drivers side.
I lubed up the drivers side lock and it freed up mostly, and put it in the passenger side, as it's rarely used.

Anyway, my central locking has always been a bit iffy on the passenger side. It works fine if you use the key in the passenger door, but if you use the drivers door it only sometimes goes up/down.

I would prefer if it ALWAYS worked or ALWAYS didn't work.

So I want to disconnect it. Inside the door trim is the plastic box for the central locking. It has 1 yellow pipe going into the bottom. There are also 2 flexible black pipes that probably have pipes inside them going into the unit.

How to I disconnect this door from the central locking without it affecting the other doors?

Thanks!

Take off the pipe and block up the end of the pipe

The main yellow pope either sucks or blows and that is the main line up I believe
