It could be that the codes just need clearing, a bad connection, a faulty part - or possibly most likely if my experience rings true, another one is faulty now! I did all four in the end

Hmmm thought I would give this a go today as I have a fault on both nearside locks. Only have one sensor at the moment with a couple more on their way from the far east. Thought I'd start with the front door as the rear is further recessed so would be better when I knew what I was doing. Undid the torx screw as far as it would go but I can't get the door handle to lock open. I get it into the position as shown in Ian's picture but the slightest touch and the handle closes which clearly isn't correct. Curses...curses

Admitted defeat. Third attempt today but can't get the passengers front door handle to 'lock' in the correct position. I have faults on both nearside doors so will find somewhere localish who can swap these out for me when I have a couple of days off next month....disappointed as it looked so straight forward and I miss advanced key.... heyho

Iíve done 2 now on my Sportback if you want a hand? Itís a fiddle and not intuitive at first look - I used string round the handle to get it located properly on 1st go but for 2nd I used Ianís method successfully

That's very generous Adrian, I'm sorely tempted if only to find out what I'm doing wrong.
