    Default Amarok deurslotte dryf my na drank

    Can I just say that I have grown fond of my Amarok over the years, but I absolutely hate the door locks. I've already had to replace two and now another one is packing up.
    It is such a schlep when doors either don't lock, or don't unlock when you expect them to. At least it is intermittent at this stage. But at some point I'll need to look at it again.


    Hoekom moet 'n man so sukkel?

    OK, rant over.

    At least it's some consolation that I'm not the only one suffering (any excuse for being driven to drink).

    The click-click of attempted locking every time I pass the 20 km/h mark has reached a stage where I find myself gnashing my teeth in anticipation of the event.

    maak miskien een van die ou slotte oop en kyk wat fout gaan.

    Ek is in die spring bedryf, en ons kry baie navrae vir Mercedes handels/slotte wat breek en Paar duisend per handle en dis 'n klein spring wat breek en kan vervang word

    Kyk na die spieel vertsteller regterkant ,hy moet in die middel wees.
    So nie sluit die deure nie.

    Hi

    Ek is ook een van die wat sukkel met deur wat nie sluit nie, en ja ek het bogenoemde gou probeer, nie waar nie. Ek het op "0" geplaas maar deur sluit nog steeds nie.

    Ek is ook nie bereid om die R 6000 te betaal vir die vervanging, so ek sluit nou bakkie met sleutel. Behalwe dat ek die bakkie geniet en nie wil verkoop ten spyte van sy 120000 km op die klok nie, is die deure 'n irritasie en teleurstelling

    Ek vloek, en dan sluit ek maar met die sleutel

    The other day i fell on the floor laughing. Newish Amarok. A girl at work opens the back and the entire locking mechanism falls out of the tailgate.
    I rolled on the floor laughing. It was the funniest thing watching her expression as she stands with the handle in her hand the locking mechanism falls into the panels.

    We had to fish it out.

    As dit enige iemand gaan help-ek het ook op een van my voertuie 'n slot probleem gekry-herstel kostes was net te veel. Het die slot uitgehaal-die motortjie uit gekry en oopgemaak-met electro cleaner skoon gespuit-al die kontakpunte met fyn skuurpapier skoongemaak....en terug gesit....probleem opgelos.

    Iemand anders het dit ook suksesvol gedoen. Dus die moeite werd om te probeer

    Gosh I must be lucky as I have had mine (2011 model) going on 300k km, and never had an issue with the central locking. I don't spend much time on dirt roads, so not sure if this is related. Most off road these days is on the beach.

    Am i just lucky?

    I am also lucky then. I have a 2011 since new with 340 000 km of which quite a lot is gravel or sand, no door lock issues. Also a used V6, no lock issues to date. I wonder what causes the issues - dust/sand/old grease/no lubrication/bad design?

    Have you got kids?

    If yes, make sure no-one is yanking on the door handles during a lock/unlock process, - that breaks them. Been through two on my Audi until I realized it's the kids pulling the handle (from the outside) into the open position waiting for me to push the button on the remote.

    Since I explained this to them and they no longer do it... no more replacements.
