« on: 15 July 2018, 19:15:09 »

Hi, Not sure if this is electrical problem, but drivers door keeps opening

I had the exact thing happen with my 1999 Omega a few years ago. I also tried oil, grease on the mechanism but the problem kept occurring.

It was quite frightening and extremely dangerous (oncoming traffic etc) :o

In the end I bought a new mechanism from my local Vauxhall dealer and this cured the problem.

If you are handy with the spanners etc it is a relatively simple swap.

 Hi,
Thanks for your reply, yes really scary when door suddenly swings open. Have tried vauxhall dealers and they dont do them any more. Have rang various dealers and cant seem to get one. Will keep trying.
Cheers.
