central locking problem

This is my first post so be gentle.
I have a 1998 clk230k sport with a bit of an annoying problem with the central locking.If i open the car with the remote the passenger door opens immediately but the drivers door takes about 20 seconds,however when i lock the car both doors lock straight away.Also if i try to lock the car from the inside using the switch on the console,only the passenger side locks.I've been searching this forum to try and find an answer and only come up with a door actuator fault.Any suggestions would be appreciated before i take it to the shop.

Have you checked vacuum lines to the problematic lock to be sure it isn't split, blocked or come off slightly?

I know where the pump is but do not know which lines feed what.Should i be checking from the pump or inside the door?

I was speaking generally, but if you can trace the lines it's always good to check each terminal, since checking one end only gives you half the picture. Also, you may want to repost your request for help in the CLK specific forum on this site, and use the search feature there. You will usually get more specific responses than you do in the "general" forum.
