    Had a problem with the rear door latch on my 200tdi and discovered it was a small tension spring that was causing the problem that I couldn't open the back door without leaning over the back seat to hold the locking mechanism up whilst opening the door.

    Looked everywhere I could think of in town to find someone who would supply these small springs.

    Eventually, I did an image search on Google and came up with this site:

    http://disco-compatible-parts.com/springs.html

    No way was I going to buy a complete latch.

    So hopefully this will help someone else on here.

    Cheers
    George

    Did see that post, but didn't notice where you could get them, unless I had a blind moment.
