'02 VW Polo 1.2 (Daily Driver) & '84 W123 230E
Hi, Just joined the forum after buying a beautiful '84 W123 230E with a friend. There are a few things wrong with it, but the body and (most) of the mechanicals are sound. The central locking system seems to be very dodgy- you have to lock the driver's door first, and push down the rear door locks, and lock the passenger door individually. The boot seems a bit temperamental either way. I believe the system is a vacuum one. Any ideas where I should start for fault finding? It's a beautiful car, and we're planning on restoring it completely, so will probably be asking quite a few questions on this forum!
