So I've fallen victim to the garbage central locking in my EF like so many others before me. I want to know if it's possible to disable it so I can leave the rear doors permanently locked and only use key entry for the front doors, or failing that, can I just throw on some doors from another model that all have keylocks? Cheers.

Not looking to replace anything, don't have the time or money. I just wanna know the easiest way to get rid of it.

??

it can be done however having the back doors permanently locked can lead to further problems re access either into or out of - ie in say case of accident back seat passengers will have probs gettin out

When I said permanently locked rear doors, I meant from the outside. I don't know I'd you're aware but they still open from the inside even if they're locked, so there's no worry about anyone getting stuck and besides that, it's not gonna be a passenger car, I'm planning some crazy mods for it like that stuff you see in Pimp My Ride ;)

Think mobile bar, complete with pop out stools and enough booze to kill a giraffe!

Hi,

There are Childproof locks. Open the door and there is a lever above the latch.
