My passenger side door lock & Trunk lock are not working at all. I can hear the air from the vacuum line hissing in the door (or somewhere nearby).

Anybody got a fix for this, or am I stuck with going to the shop?

If you can hear it then hopefully the hose has come off or split. Easy to fix.
You will have to find where the leak is though.
Plastic line can be joined with small bits of rubber hose.
Hopefully lock isnt broken.
This may mean removing door panel if your confident.

Hi Felkhound,
Did you sort you vacuum line?
I've got exactly the same problem - i've take all the door panel screws out and unclipped the bottom of the door, but it seems resistant around the door pull are??
Did you experience this?
Thanks
Andy

Put it under water, and lock the doors, see where the bubbles come from, And there's your split hose. :D

door lock???

I've checked the yellow vacuum pipe and it seems fine. The noise of hissing air is coming from inside the lock itself. Is this repairable?
Thanks
Andy
