Legacy wagon boot lock

Recommended Posts

Hey team I’ve got a 2005 legacy wagon h6. I’m having trouble getting the rear door to lock, I had the actuator replaced this time last year and all the loom going into the door replaced 2 months ago. All other doors work fine and you can hear the actuator and see it pulling the door but it won’t lock/disengage the handle. Anyone got any thoughts on my next step on this slightly annoying as I can’t lock the car without flicking that white lever on the actuator

Interesting...

My right rear door is intermittent for locking and unlocking, always push lock 3 times as I walk away to be safe

Keen to see how you fix yours

Have you had all the boot lining off to see what is working and what isn't?  Could the cable at the handle end have popped off? 

 

Usually it's the wiring as it travels between the body and the boot gets severed eventually with these models which is probably your issue NTYCME. Pull the rubber boots up and you might find a few damaged wires.

From what I can see when I pulled the lining off everything is working. I completely agree about the wiring I had patched up the wires a couple of years ago. When I had issues with it again I took it to an auto electrician in November and they replaced everything in the left (drivers side) loom. Would there be something in the right hand side loom to do it? I had a look but it looks repaired and heavily taped up
