Hi. I've got a '51 plate T260. The side door is double locked and wont open. Fuse is ok, I've disconnected the wires and connected locking mech directly to same wires to bypass the contact plate on the door, I've tried swapping red/white with red/black then double locking door to see if this opens it. I'm now stuck, reckon solenoid must be buggered but how do i open the door to remove it. please help....
It'll be dirt/corrosion on the three door contacts. My MK6 did it once and thankfully decided to open one day and I cleaned the contacts and kept them clean. Not sure how you'd go about opening it in your case though, maybe spray some wd40 type stuff at it?
my 350 does it all the time pull the cable on the inside and get someone to bounce on the outside it always comes open eventually there is a knack to pulling the handle sharply and not denting the door it dont help having the bottom roller broken
if you remove plug from 3 pin contact to the motor, of the motor side, think it is red black and green wires, you can swap or put a link wire in to swap 2 of the wires, of the top of me head think its red and green. when swapped press the fob to lock or unlock and it should open. at least thats how i did my mates a couple of times when it deadlocked and wouldn't open, then a second hand motor/lock fitted and it was fine.
