sounds of machine gun fire while door tries to lock
I have a 2007 B200 turbo. We bought it last year and have had no problems with it until about a month ago. My passenger side door started making a horrible machine gun fire kind of noise when I attempted to lock it. It doesn't do this every time, but probably about 80% of the time. And then will not lock. All 3 other doors will. I thought it maybe was my remote lock battery .... except it also does this when I lock the car from the inside.
Last night I believed the car was locked, only to come out this morning to find out that apparently it wasn't, as someone had rifled through it. Just looking for change I suspect as they left the gps and all the ipod gadgets.
Anyone know what is causing this? I don't want to take it to the dealer and get dinged with a $500 service charge when all it needed was a spray of WD40!
Also, I have rust on the inside of my hatchback door. And the lining around the stick is "rough" and peeling. I've actually cut myself on this! Are these common problems with a B200?? I'm really disappointed! I drove a Kia previously and never had these problems!!
any suggestions would be most appreciated! And I know absolutely nothing about cars, so the most basic explanation would be the most helpful!!
