hey mate, had similar hassles with my au, dont know if the central locking system is the samefrom the au to the ba though. what happened in mine, is inside the locking unit behind the door latch, theres a cog connected to a splined spindle. the motor makes the spindle turn, which locks the door. that cog and spindle is made of plastic, and snapped of at the base of spindle, so the cog turned and but didnt lock the door. you can either take the unit out, open it up and glue it back together, or buy a replacement actuator from either ford or a wreckers. very simple to install, take door skin off, undo a series of screws new one in reverse procedure. hope this helps

the locks between the BA 1 and AU's are the same. I have had the same problem with my ba many times. Gotta replace the door lock the gears inside are screwed.
Ford apparently have now made stronger one's but you have to buy an adaptor for them.

Is there a trick to this? When I took mine out it exploded everywhere due to the springs so I didn't get a good look at how it came out. Now I'm having trouble getting the cog back in. I've got the cog, the metal washer and the plastic one, along with two springs, am I missing a part or something?
