Coupe door locks (was Fiche an some other stuff)


I had similar problems with our '91 Coupe. When it got cold the inside
door handles would start to feel "mushy", and eventually the release cable
would pop out of the guide at the inside end. An easy fix for me (meaning
without removing the door panel) has been to remove the inside latch
assembly and carefully inject some light lubricant down the cable (this is
somewhat awkward). Let me know if you find some upgrade parts.
