Over the past few days my door lock has started making a very loud grinding sound when it's locked. Found the fix on YouTube. It's actually easier on our cars, because you don't need to unscrew the 3 screws. Took me literally 10 seconds.

Here's the fix:

Nice tip!  Neither of my doors are doing it (yet...) but if it occurs then at least I know the fix.  Thanks for sharing.

Coincidentally, a faint noise started again this morning. I looked and - lo & behold - the pin had just started to work its way out slightly again, so I'm currently thinking about ways of gluing something over the end, to stop it coming out again. Any suggestions gratefully received!

Maybe put some threadlock on the exposed part of the pin and then when you press it back in it might help hold it there.

Fingers crossed it does the trick, if not it`s back to the drawing board 😂

I was thinking about your 'threadlock' idea  and decided I wouldn't do it, in case the pin is supposed to turn. Wouldn't want to f*** the actuator mechanism, would I? I'm currently planning to go back to Option A - aralditing something over the end of the pin.
