greasing everything worked for about a week now starting to pack up again when you unlock drivers door boot and passenger door unlock but you have to wait for what i assume is the moter in the drivers door to go otherwise if you open the door the alarm goes off.so to save getting stuck in a car park looking like i,m nicking it  i,ve pulled central locking fuse out.any suggestions greatly appreciated can,t really afford to take it to garage at moment
