Just bought a XR6 AU2 and the alarm keypad wasnt working, i followed the steps in one of the threads and now it works, but the drivers door seems to make the noise from the central locking but it doesnt lock or unlock. What can be the problem?

Sounds like it is the gear but you WON'T buy one from Ford as they don't sell them. You could buy the gear from Ebay http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/FORD-CENTRAL-DOOR-LOCK-ACTUATOR-REPAIR-KIT-AU-BA-BF-TERRITORY-FITS-ALL-AUS-/251147012455?pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3a79874967and fit it yourself but not guarantee it would last. I know it is a bit expensive but buy a GENUINE Ford one which could cost you are $180.00 or look at the NEW ones they have on Ebay for much less.

Well, I sold Car parts for more than 40 years, mainly Ford, and in the last 5 years have had many people come and buy a NEW Lock&Actuator after they bought a gear from Ebay and found that within a few months the lock stuffed up again.
There is NO need to be cheap as the new one from the link I left is $133.00.
