Have not installed the central locking unit but am looking into it, the inside door panels come off pretty easy, all you need is a piece of wire with a hook on the end and you can pull the clip off on the inside of the window winder (be careful as the spring clip can fly out and get lost). The little black triangle shape plastic cover on the inside of the side mirrors need to come off as well.

An easy way to remove the winder handle is to get a piece if rag & slide it down between the handle & the door trim (if there is a disc between the handle & trim the rag has to go on the clip side of the disc which is normally between the disc & handle)

Hold both ends & pull down in the opposite direction from the handle & the rag should snag the ends of the clip & pull it off so you can remove the handle off the spline

To replace the handle push the clip all the way on & than push the handle over the tapered end of the spline & the clip will expand & than lock the handle back in place

Lachy,
Just fitted a central locking kit to my 100 series at the weekend. It's a bit trickey because the locks have a cable mechanism instead of the older style rods. The door panels are quite easy to remove and as described by others the window winder is also quite easy. The rods that are supplied with the kit you bought are probably too short, I went to Bunnings and bought some 3.2mm wire and made some new rods. Heres the trickey bit, I flattened the end of the wire and drilled a 2.5mm hole in it. I then removed the interior door handle and drilled a 5mm hole through it and attached the rod directly to the back of the door lock button on the inside. That's just a brief description of a trickey job! I also connected the whole lot up to a pushbutton remote. I seems to work a treat at the moment but time will tell how succesful it will be. I dont expect any issues as I spent a bit of time figureing out how to make it work and thinking through how to make it all work.If you are in Sydney I'd be happy to show you what I did and lend a hand with yours. If not I could take some photos and send to you.

Lachy,

Fitted one to my standard cruiser about 8 months ago. A bit tricky, but is perfectly do-able by the average person. Has worked fine and am very happy with it. I am in Perth so if you need a guiding hand, drop me a line, orchard_david@hotmail.com.

Regard

Dave

Thanks Dave. I hope to be doing mine in the next couple of weeks. I am going to the Warrren this weekend and next is the Caravaning & Camping show. So hopefully the weekend after that
