Part no. 912181, the front passenger (LHF) door catch assembly wanted please.



:shock: None of the doors open or lock as they should on my (recently acquired) Sprint, three of the doors do open/close
so I expect to be able to get these to work properly in time (with the help of Plus Gas)
but however I cannot get the LHF door open at all.....so I suspect that I may have to sacrifice the catch, hence this request.



Please PM stating the price if you can help,


thanks,


Ian.

I did manage to get the offside rear door to close and latch, which it wasn't when you viewed, but as you know the nearside was far less accessible to me!

On the offside rear, the lever that the external handle button bears upon had seized in the open position.

This seems to be a very common failing with cars that are left standing for long periods. Currently, only 2 of SCG's doors will open but i'm hoping to sort that this week!
