    504 (door locks)

    The door locks on my 504ti dont open the doors properly anymore. The mechanism on the inside of the doors seems to have a small plastic bush that wears away, subsequently the mechanism does not open fully. Spares at breaker yard's seem to all have the same problem. Has anybody come across a quick fix or mod.

    If you have the pull up style handles (the flush fitting door handles), the problem can be fixed by bending the plate which the plastic thing strikes against, using a pair of long nosed pliers. You just have to remove the interior door trimming to get to it with the pliers. This quick fix restored the doors on my 504 to perfect operating condition and they have remained good for the past 5 years.
