Remember that if you’re not using your car, now might be a good time for some lock and key preventative maintenance or a new key.
Can you get into your car OK if the car battery is flat? Most BMWs and Range Rover L322 driver’s locks are prone to breaking. Make sure your door lock is working and you can open the car with the blade.
Discovery 3, 4, Range Rover Sport, Evoque etc. with the door lock on the passenger side and under the plastic cover locks are renowned for seizing. Make sure they are properly lubricated and moving with the key blade. Please don’t use WD40 except in an emergency. Lubricate the lock with thin machine oil, like 3in1, or, even better, a proper graphite lube.
We can repair your BMW/L322 door lock and we also stock new JLR passenger side locks and keys and these are all available by mail order.
We can also repair your keys/recase/install a new battery and now is the perfect time for a new key by mail order. If you don’t need to use your car every day, we can probably supply you with a new key by mail order.
If mail order doesn’t suit, remember that the list for our next trips is still open here.
Please get in touch if you need anything.
