Door lock bounce w203
Further to all discussions posted on the above topic, I think there might be a cheaper alternative to replacing your door locks/actuators.
I have recently replaced two (driver's door lock and rear left door lock) of mine. I am no technician or fundi but I stripped my faulty locks and found that a little spring could be the resultant cause of the door lock bounce. I have attached a picture of the spring and relative size to a common paper clip. The problem is the spring was lying loose inside each of the locks that I stripped. It is really difficult to ascertain where the springs fit and I cannot tell whether the spring has been broken or not...I cannot see any other pieces of it anywhere. If anybody has knowledge of this please advise as it could save lots of people a considerable amount of money. Also, it would make it relatively simple to repair if somebody has an exploded diagram of the lock.
