03 c230 power lock issue
When I attempt to lock or unlock my doors the drivers side lock will go up and down about 4 -5 times in an attempt to lock. This happens every time the door locks or unlocks and only occurs on the driver side door.
Sometimes the door will lock/unlock on the first try, sometimes it will partially lock/unlock and other times it will take 4 or 5 attempts to get it to lock/unlock.
Even when I use the key manually it still does not work. The lock will not engage fully if I use the key. If I unlock with the key manually, then open the door, the alarm goes off.
Is the power lock going bad? I noticed a small crack in the plastic sheeth on the latch (the latch on the body of the car, not the door) could that be it?
