    Where are you based, I am guessing Swords like myself. Courtney motors in North Strand might be able to help. If you are willing to travel, Cab in Super4 down in Newtownmountkennedy should be able to sort you out.
    Regards,

    Manual, semi or fully automatic? What's wrong with it?

    Thanks lads. It's a full auto. The latch motor is working. I've had the gears out of the motor and cleaned and greased them. The problem is I'm not getting a proper seal on closing on the drivers side where the roof meets the top of the windscreen. There is no problem with the passenger side seal.

    Seals compress with age. You need to make a small cut and push in some plastic tubing to pack them out.

    Thanks Torq. Yeah I thought about doing that but it's not closing like the other side so it's defo an issue associated with the motor gears or the worn gear and or the latch itself.
