After you've sorted the brakes, etc, get those windscreen side trims off to check for rust in the pillars, before it's get's bad and cracks the screen (or worse!)

These pics are pretty gross, and you can see the type of plastic clip (two per side) that you need to carefully prise the trim over. There's also a philips screw at the bottom of the trims (open door to reveal). If you are careful, the clips won't break....

Had a proper looksee yesterday eve...

few jobs lol...there's bound to be more
drivers door lock is a bit tempermental.
trim lifting on top of door cards.
tiny chip in plastic on centre console.
passenger wing mirror glass abit wobbly...
brakes ceased solid needs disc and pads, fresh fluids at very least.
no clutch. pedal goes down and up. so master or slave or both.
gonna tackle this a slightly different way than last eunos restore that was off the road for 7 months as i only been driving eunos for a coupe of weeks and she has some niggles to sort and do the mot jobs first and then at least a rolling restoration i can enjoy as the summer is in front of me. so its wheels off proper looksee at brakes and clutch and make a list of parts reqd. hoping to get onit tomoz as commitments elsewhere today.

drivers door lock is a bit tempermental.
Was the same on BOTH my FB's - have to apply slight downward pressure on the keys before turning and then they operate fine. Have you tried the boot key barrel? Just taken mine off KIMI 2 and it's soaking in WD-40 as it's never worked (seized solid) - always had to use the electric dash switch to release hatch.

no clutch. pedal goes down and up. so master or slave or both.
Had that issue on BOTH my FB's too, so very common. KIMI 1 just needed a new slave, but I replaced the master as well. KIMI 2 required a new slave AND a new clutch release fork as the previous one had rusted to the guide collar and previous owner must have tried to kick it free!


That obviously required the gearbox to be dropped, so put in new clutch whilst I was at it. Tim W provided a new fork  :)

I hope your situation is just the slave!

Best way to sort your locks is by fitting  Remote Central Locking....easy job, unit cost ¬£12 off EBay......from china.   I amongst others did it about 3 years ago & makes life so much easier.   Probably on of the things that has had the most benefit I have done to mine!
