Got a rear door which will not lock. 

Looking for someone who knows someone who might be able to sort this out.

This may be a tad obvious, but have you tried spraying it with WD40? sometimes the most obvious thing is the solution.
Do not take life to seriously no one gets out alive anyway

Tried Plus Gas (which is way better than WD40 ) a well as WD40 & grease. Both without any lock.

Think it needs the door panel off & hoping it's some dirt in the mechanism. Have not got the tools required to get the panel off, plus if it's a part required be better for someone who knows which part & where to get it on the island.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Thanks, Tamara, I have contacted Andy already & he asked me to ring next week to arrange something, so he is still working.

Got another option if he can't fix or is too busy.
