    We.done it now on a van. Is great. Car stops on the track you just push it out the way.
    No muscle effort and dirty shoes.

    No is not. I had the plans of using it if need be but we welded a.steelcrossbar on an old transit and using that

    Still thinking of an American police pushbar .
    Evtl. Some.day. maybe.
    The question is how much is it worth to put into mods the way it cost just to keep it driving.

    Closed circuit = continuity = beep.

    Door ajar means open or closed. Try it again. Door open should be beep. Door closed is no beep.

    Wiring changes with year. All years are in RAVE you just need to pick the right one. Yours is an early lock. Marty has a later motor. Yours has the separate plug for the earth. MGF were the same around that age and can be bought cheap on the Bay and cannibilised easily. However, you might do better just getting a refurbed one off Marty. He has a website called something like P38spares. Or send @martyuk a message on here.

    yes you did.
    now i know it is the lock as even with testing it again it fails on that one single test.
    Thanks GRRRR for explaining.

    i a not sure if i want to go down them lines especially seeing the prices on a bloody part known to fail door lock system. which can be happen in 6 month or year again.

    Range Rover P38 MKII Front Right Door Lock Latch Actuator (Right Hand Drive) 1995-1999
    Price :
    £225.00

    by now i spend over 3k in this car buying and replacing .( and that not even with new Tyres ) i never ever would buy a second hand car for this amount over the last 20 year. not even a ferrari. and i never ever had this amount on trouble with any car. no matter which one. well, most got sold before spending a lot in.

    i enquire what marty is asking for refurbished ones but i m sure i do not pay that amount.
    i rather find any working door from a breaker and respray the whole car in one colour to match the door.
    that even is cheaper.

    ii seen a picture of someone made padlocks on all doors - i think he was in the same frustrating situation and just had enough. lol

    A second hand door lock is a waste of money, it will fail PDQ Marty's refurb with uprated switches will probably outlast the car.

    There's plenty of latch pares out there at reasonable prices. Marty's are fully refurbished with new microswitches, so should last the lifetime of the car.

    Otherwise get a spare & learn how to replace the parts yourself. The microswitches are quite cheap, and there several guides on here & rangerovers.net how to refurbish them yourself. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MGF-MGTF...190862?hash=item523a0c1dce:g:870AAOSw0o9e6JiQ

    I did both front doors on mine for about £20 each.

    I don't think he is but if he is he needs jailing for overcharging. P38 Spares prices are horrendous.

    Well. I knew I cant do this. I knew it 50 years ago thats why I never touched locks. I rather sold the vehicles.
    And now I'm stuck and have no idea how to get this rod of without using a grinder and cutting the door to have proper access.

    Its for me easier changing a door as fiddle with stuff i don't know how to do.


    Anyone has any tips how to ?

    Unclip from door handle, and it simply swivels out. If I remember correctly the top of the rod is a push-in to the handle, but there may be a retaining clip. Don't try to pull it out, but use a long flat blade screwdriver. Insert between the rod & handle, and turn until the rod pops out. Re-install is best using long nose pliers to clip them together.

    Take pictures before, and at each step as you dismantle the lock. Makes re-assembly easier. Look for wear on the tips of the microswitches. This stops the levers actuating them properly.

    Now you have the latch removed, if it's too fiddly then send the latch to Marty for refurb.

    If you can only just get the latch/lock out, I think that changing micro switches is probably going to stretch you even more.
    Wait for Marty to get back (he’s a busy boy but will respond soon I am sure) don’t destroy or bin you lock as Marty will want it in exchange or you will pay more.

    I think you will find a complete door will be mega bucks,breakers strip the locks,handles, mirrors,windows and door cards.they make more money that way.
