mine does it every now and then and so does the boot, but only with continous lock/unlocking. not had a problem since i had the N/S lock replaced because it locked shut. haven't had a problem with the boot lock at all so i think its just been tempremental.

Easy now grim!

Had this exact problem last year!
The locking mechanism's fucked. I thought i was at fault because i tinted the windows myself a week before the problem {hadn't put the door card back on correctly}.
Took it back to MG and they did the locking unit on warranty. Apparently a common fault.

They do it a lot Steve.

I have had both replaced on mine and the drivers door still fails to unlock on occasion - but not often enough to take it back to the dealer though.

Shite build quality as you said - Buy a GTI or a Type R, mate next time. I think I will........ :x:

I know how you feel lads i have had this problem too its all to common so you think they would have sorted it out before now but things like this happen on all cars its not just MG's, hang in there they will iron out after a while keep the faith.
