Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
Hi I have a 1997 5 door GTI central locking is playing up, unlocks with key pump unit runs on but wont lock with key have to push dont the door pins on all doors and lock drivers door with key
Can you advise where to start?
Could most propably have been either a broken vacuum pipe or a leaking servo in either doors,boot or fuel flap.Mostly the vacuum lines get disconnected in the boot area,since they get easily disturbed by something heavy.Let the pump operate and listen for a leak ...
The best way is to work with a small vacuum hand pump with gauge and to isolate in stages and test each door,boot and line for leaks...
