Where To begin Door Lock Vacume Question

734 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  ElRojo
All locks on the car have always worked nicely but awhile ago I noticed they started to become sluggish and then for awhile they'd all work (sluggishly) with the exception of the back passengers door which I would I have to walk around the car and lock manually. Is this perhaps a tip off or could it serve as a reference for a starting point for repair? None of the power locks work now and well you know not too good for dating!

Any help, tips, ideas or suggestions appreciated.

you could be losing vacuum and should test the valves to be sure. Also, make it one of your PM quests to remove the door skins, lubricate window sliders, regulators and the locking mechanisms. Be sure your door drains are clear and ready for the minnesota winter. (that is if you drive in the snow/salt)

search the 126 forum for vacuum door locks or similar and you will find alot.

thanks Mike, I meant to say the PODS>>>> since I am doing this, I just called them the wrong thing.
