Newb with a couple of issues


Hi all,

New member from North Wales. Any other members in the area? I have a red mk1 GTO TT, had it a few years now but getting around to sort a couple of issues.

First is the front Aero occasionally sticks down. I’m guessing its a switch in the motor assembly? but wondering if anyone has a guide to a possible fix.

The second issues is the drivers door lock sometimes makes a funny noise and fails to lock/unlock. Like its the motor/module? Is this a common issues, again any help on a fix before I strip it down?

Thanks for any info in advance.



Hi Gary,

Welcome to GTOUK.

Both of these are common issues, unfortunately the answers are located in our technical and how to sections. These sections are available only in the Full Member Area, so sending you a link will not work.

Classy photos car looks great.


Looks very smart, Mk4 sail panels suit a Mk1 well.

as you a full member now you can see this post about the locks if not this one then there a few more on the site :slight_smile:


Thanks. Although that doesn’t seem like the same symptoms as mine but could certainly be the same cause. I will take a look.



Not a hard job to replace the solenoid if you have one, my c/l simply does nothing so will report back when sorted.
