Morning all,

My 93 mk3 golf 1.8 cl vaccum central locking pump has started to play up, ive done some research but cant seem to find anyone with the same problem as me..

The symptoms are as follows (it was all working 3 days ago and shes SORN so hasn't been driven either)

Unlocking the car from either barrel results in it unlocking but the pump overruns which i know maybe caused by a vacuum leak (from researching these forums)
However locking the car from either barrel no longer does anything and is really stiff, like the pump is fighting me to unlock it?
Im guessing its very unlikely for both barrels to break at exactly the same time? So what could be causing them both not to function?

Any help on the matter would be amazing!

Thanks in advance

Mike

The system works pressure to open and vacuum to lock but yes I think the deadlock system is figting you. It reminds me of an issue about 25 years ago but I will have to retrieve it when the memory circuits reconnect.
