the lock/latch part on my squeeks like mad, so i have to drown it in WD40 every week....

Does it pop open when the lock is Locked?

Is it a bit like a pop up wing on a TT or 911 but not quite as cool :lol:

Sounds like the lock might be knackered, try getting a 2nd hand one, make sure you get one with a key as well!

Sounds like its not seating on the striker well enough or the lock has gone, more than likely the second mate
