Question 3 Questions about central locking system

I'm having intermittent centeral locking problems. Can any one tell me
1) Does the small compressor in the trunk have brushes that I can check and or replace.
2) Can the switch in the door be disassembled and cleaned the way you can to the seat switches.
3) How are the wires from the switch to the pump run.

I have already replaced the ground at the pump and the wires from the switch to inside the left kick panel.

Thumbs up I guess no one has ever had to deal with this before

but I did find where my cars problem was. I removed the pump from the trunk and took the cover with the four screws off the back. Inside there is a circuit board with wires attached. I lifted this board away from the chamber that it was mounted in. Underneath I found that the board was connected to two long, small width spade connectors. I cleaned these connectors and bent them slightly for better contact. Also on the board is a small relay. I cleaned all the contacts on this. I then put it all back together. It all works perfectly now.

Good work Phil, alot of trunks like ours have seen plenty of moisture so it's no surprise that a good cleaning of the contacts fixed your problem..
