    Hello all

    I have a Movano Van 2014 plate. since new the side door thinks its open so it bleeps. had it repaired a few times under warranty and again since.
    No point me taking it back so i thought Id replace contact parts myself.

    where would I buy and what do I ask for?


    Thank you Bod

    This is often a fault within the lock itself unfortunately, as door closed switches are rarely used these days.
    How was the fault repaired last time?

    I think they replaced the contacts on the door and static upright.

    I think a design fault so if it mens replacing these bits every now and then so be it

    Just need to know what I'm asking for

    A guess from me could well waste your money but I would recommend contacting Autovaux and explaining the symptoms. For sure they will have heard of this problem before and could supply what you need.

    Thanks Burner. It's about the sucurity of the can. My guess is I'll have to replace a few more times as well.

    Appreciate you want a quick fix, but I'd be pestering the dealer - a fault that reappears constantly? Must be a design fault and they have a responsibility to sort it!

    I think now the doors dropped a tad

    Yeah, that's unfortunate.
