    does the cog part just tirn around?if so it may just be the spring on the inside of the door you need to remove the lock to accesse this they can sometimes become dislodged and just need a clean/lub and reattatching

    Hi Kev. Unfortunately the car had to live outside this winter. Hopefully soon I can bring it to it's new home with me!
    The part that is broken is on the bottom to the right of the spring. You can see that part of that tab to the right is broken. The door will close, but not stay properly closed without that tab thing.

    the cog on the outside turns a cog on the inside which has a spring to stop it turning back,the outer cog goes into an inverted G on the body and locks the to together when you press the button a lever releases the inner cog and the door opens if the springs broken or displaced the door closes but wont stay closed,the tab just guides the door it looks like yours is worn trabi parts 006.JPG you can see the spring at the bottm

    Yep, I saw it was all cast. I'll check tomorrow again to make sure. Might take the whole assembly off.

    It's a bit fiddly but not to bad let me know if you think you can use any of the lock parts

    Thanks to Kev, I don't need the door lock after all! All it needed was a little cleaning and lubrication. I incorrectly assumed a worn looking part was the culprit.
