William all locks works, except the drivers side interior lock/unlock button switch is pushed back in a bit.
A clip or something in the rear side of panel that holds the switch flush, something went snap. So off the panel must come. I have ignored it for too long.
Yours sounds like it needs cleaning and lube or the motor is getting tight on something.

Ahh, mine did that once, I cannot remember what I did, but it was an easy fix.
Some lube may help, the motor has enough power, it just sticks a bit, I can feel it when I use a key on that side, it is much harder to turn, I'll have to take the door panel off to see what it is, just have been putting it off as I hate taking the panels off, good thing I have done it before, so I know it is not too bad, just need to be slow and careful popping the clips..

I am glad you have had your panels off before William.
I think I am more scared of removing my door panel than Halloween itself!!
I think I need to call "Guns" over here..!!

Whenever I get around to trying to fix it I'll take some pics, it will be a while though, because the rain is getting to my rear floorboards still, trunk go longer gets wet, but somehow the water is getting in the floorboard again, and the moisture inside has gotten so bad I seen mold start to grow on my steering wheel, so I will have to take the carpet up soon, probably have it cleaned, and wipe the whole interior down really well, mold is nasty stuff!
Sorry for getting off topic, a little sleepy, off to bed I go.

I am going to order the AST-4505 Astro Pneumatic 4505 5-Piece Fastener and Molding Remover Set from Babco tools in Canada.
Our door panels are a bit different but will always look forward to your pics! Sorry to hear you may need a "tarp" or bilgepump soon William.
I hope you can find the leak or leaks, have you pulled out the rear seat to look there as well?

Found a pic of the Astro Kit for ya.


I have not taken out the back seat yet, I imagine it is fairly simple to do, but I have not removed it before, so I am not sure where to start, I think I seen bolts for it when I pulled the upper back part of the seat loose when I was working on my struts.
I really think it is coming in from the windows some how, because no front carpet gets wet, and the trunk stays bone dry now.
I'll update my thread on leaks whenever I get around to removing it, I may also remove the door moldings and see if I can add some silicone to the inside of them like I did with the trunk one, I just don't want to pull them off, and then have trouble getting them back on as they were..
