RE: [DML] Door Locks

There is a copper disk (switch) as part of the keyed door lock that gets
dirty or bent and  the switch part will only work lock or unlock or not at
all. I have this same problem with my car where I can only unlock both doors
from the drivers side but the passenger side locks and unlocks both doors.
The problem is disassembling the door lock to clean or adjust the copper
ring. There is a plastic ring that holds the whole lock to the door and is
very brittle and will break as you try to disassemble the lock and I don't
believe they are available any longer. It's a very difficult job to perform
because its up inside the door and hard to see.

Got a new problem with my door locks.  Drivers side will lock both doors,
but will only unlock the driver's side.  It doesn't engage the solenoid, it
only moves the actual mechanical part when using either the inside lock or
the key.  I haven't taken the door apart yet, but could there be a wire
loose?  Will the solenoid work one way and not
the other?
