Yes. If it has a tube stick it in the hole where the lever goes in.

The drivers door would not open. Even after I took the door handle off I had to soak it with solvent and work on the latch. 6.....long....hours.

6 hours!! Damn.

Saying that I have been on mine for about that long.

Mine has been used for short journeys only and is really good condition. It only has 36k miles on the clock. The only issues are the door latch and the air con compressor has seized. :/

I just sprayed loads of Plus Gas all over the latch and in the groove/gap that it sits. Just about to have my dinner then back on it again in about half an hour.

It was overheated. They put a new head on it but couldn't get it running. 2 spark plugs were cracked. 3 broken vacuum lines. The intake was melted as well but I didn't find that out until I had driven it 7 or 800 miles.
