OK. So I have a new problem. The two front door handles are playing up. The locking tab inside the driver's door seems to have broken. So no central unlocking from inside.
The passenger door inside lever broke off in the ******-in-law's hand and now the door won't open at all. From inside or out, but I can hear the door unlock from outside when I push the remote unlock, the outer lever seems to have magically disconnected. The relay is not on the actuator, apparently it is on the latch assembly that physically closes on the hoop on the body of the car. So I may have to get a latch assembly. But first the bloody inner handles. Both left and right! Sigh. Ah. Also. Because the passenger door would not open, the wife was driving and I climbed out the window holding onto the roof rack. It fell away in my hands. All the plastic bases and the dowels were completely dry rotten. Thank goodness they never took load because the load would have been everywhere but on top the blighted Matrix. The madam was less than well pleased.
