Defender Door locks

I recently bought a Defender 110 and have noticed that when you lock the rear door and then try the handle 3 or 4 times it works the lock undone and you can open the door. I remember this being a problem on a Defender I used some years ago so must be a common fault ? The obvious solution is to put new locks allround ...but will the problem happen again ( in time ) ? has anybody any experience with this problem and know a good solution ?

Thanks

The only way to lock the back door of our 110 is to put the key in and turn it to lock, keep it there and try and open the door, while holding the handle up, remove the key

Lifting the handle as you lock it seems to make the lock stay in the locked position on ours.

Faulty lock - get it changed. Easy job and not that expensive. The lock is the same basic design from a million years back when everybody said hello in the street and people left their doors open anyway so it didn't matter.

presumably its still like that in the Falklands and you don't get much demand for Lock replacements at Landrover in Stanley?

They'll suggest about 250 and a couple of hours in their workshop.

An independant LR dealer may be a little more helpful though.

Genuine Landy barrels are less than a fiver, back door lock 18. Pretty pointless however as most can be opened with a knife, 20p coin, strong fingernail etc

As long as it holds the door shut it's fine.

If it doesn't, people moan about the dust in the back
