    Thank you for the helpful insights Davezj. When I did my initial fault finding, I didn't need to remove as much as you did. I had decent access to the motor/lock assembly and the wire connector after removing the door card and (making an a**e of) peeling back the moisture seal: If I need to replace the motor in future, an option might be removing the whole door handle using the two inboard screws if the door cavity is too fiddly get the lock rod off by hand or with gripping tools.

    I’ve ordered two replacement door switches under that part number, surprisingly it’s still in stock at Mitsubishi. They were just under £19 each, bargain considering the peace of mind of not worrying about the longevity of the temporary repair.

    That was my diagnosis too, the solenoid is struggling to overcome the mechanical resistance to operate the lock. It seems to 'unlock' without as much difficulty. I’m hopeful it’s debris that’s the problem and not a wire breaking down on the ‘lock’ side. I manually worked the rogue door lock with the key many times to see if it would free itself up and it seems to have done the trick for now, it now locks with the remote. Next job will be a toothbrush and grease to clean out the motor...

    It’s a shame they’ve had to resort to selling the family silver, some very rare pristine looking cars there. I’m keeping an eye on the 3000GT out of curiosity. That Evo VI TME could nudge 6 figures at auction given the borderline silly prices unadulterated examples fetch. However the first thing it’ll need is a replacement for the clutch that CarWow’s* chum destroyed in a video against the Toyota Yaris GR recently.. what a tit. * car YouTuber

    Morning all, Apparently my Galant started making ‘alarm like noises’ according to the Mrs.. so I went and checked it out. Sure enough, the front passenger door could be opened despite the car being ‘locked’, and without triggering the alarm too. When I use the key to manually lock the front passenger door (after the remote central locking secures the rest of the car) it renders it unopenable as it should be. I am assuming the remote operated lock solenoid is linked to the mechanism...
