Central locking transfer to left door?

*UPDATED PROBLEM (Post #4)* My 1989 190D 2.5 turbo was supposed to be delivered to Japan, It is Left Hand Drive, which is good for my country, but the central door lock is on the right door. Can this be transfered to the driver door? is it a big job?

I would rather think about adding a remote.
They sell on ebay for $12 and work way better than inserting the key.

I just read that I'm supposed to be able to lock the by turning the keys from outside whether it is from the intended driver door or the passenger door. So the issue is not related to it being a Japan version car.

Right now, i could only lock all doors from the front passenger (right) door. could anyone tell me, is this an electrical issue or a vacuum issue?

Turn the key twice to try and lock all doors.

It doesn't work. I know another guy with a Japan car, same problem. could it be the:
-actuator is disabled from sending the electric signal to supply pump
-or, switch in left door is blocked/ disabled
-or wire to supply pump is cut / no signal
im i making sense?
if it's vacuum, then why does all locks including the passenger door come up and down with the passenger door and trunk? it's just the other way around that doesn't work...

All US models starting in 1986 have PSE pumps for lock operation.
Meaning all activation is electrical and execution is vacuum/compressed air.
So even if your door has no electrical switch for central locking, it is not technically difficult to install one.
But access and running the wires can be a nightmare.
I think there is some info in W124 how to wire new remote next to PSE pump with not too much hassle.

That's it. thanks. The left door doesn't activate the others, but it executes with the right door. electrical therefore. i know where to trace/test the wire from it. if it's not the wire, what is this "switch" i need to buy for the left door in order for it to electrically prod the pump into opening the others? do i need a new actuaor or just a "switch"?

I don't recall anybody reporting necessary work on door switch, but should not be too difficult to take right door panel and see what switch it has and then compare the left door.
I still think you are wasting your time thinking about time consuming options, when you have much easier and much better option available.

I'm just making sure I'm headed the right track before i start. i'm not really that mechanically inclined, I'm just a stupid army officer.
