    Driver door won't lock/unlock with fob but does with key

    I need to fix this sharpest as the car is new to me and friends and family are all in awe of the car but when I have to open it or lock it by using my key in the door it just looks utter pants.

    Is it likely to be the door lock actuator?

    How easy of a fix am I looking at here.

    Any how to's for door card removal?

    Thanks

    Sucking at something is the first step to becoming sorta good at something.

    Think I just S%#$ myself laughing!!

    Anyway...have you checked the battery in the FOB? If you mean the rest of the doors do work, then my guess would be the door actuator has gone bad, which it sounds like you already expect. Sorry, the door panel is probably the only part I have not had to open on my RR so far. The RAVE (which you can download for free) has a pretty good instruction of what is involved with replacing the actuator.

    Good luck, and don't take the ribbing too personally. This forum eats it's young!

    I removed the door lock mech today, lubricated it and gave it a few taps, re-installed it but no change. So new mech will be ordered and fitted. Easy to access and change in fairness.

    Don't worry about the ribbing, I thinks it's funny.
