On my 1986 300e, yesterday without any previous weirdness, the drivers door lock stopped working. Basically when you put the key in the slot and turn it, there is no reaction. If you do the same thing on the passengers side, all locks open, including the drivers side. Basically if I unlock the door for my wife and put her in the car, my side is already open. If I try to open my side first, that won't work. I need to go to the other side, unlock the car and then go back. I know that these locks are vacuume controlled. Is that were my problem lies, or is it some sort of linkage. Any one ever heard of anything like this before?
