Polo Sportline Door Lock

Been having the dreaded door lock issue on my passenger door :twisted: fixed this on my previous Sportline by re-soldering any broken joints and cleaning the micro switch and decided to do the same on my current SL, pulled out the door lock soldered the joints cleaned the micro switch and then during installation I broke the plastic that holds the lock Pin :crazy: Plastic that broke is circled in Pic below:

Now the lock pin doesn't stay in place so going to have to get a replacement.

Anyone know if the 4 door passenger door lock is the same as the 2 door?

Where would be the best place to check for a replacement lock, 2 door Polos aren't easy to come by in the scrapyards :cry:

These locks from vw are about R1200. All have different prices with the rhs locks being cheaper than the lhs. Lol

When a car tailgates me, i slow down - then floor it and give them a cloud of diesel smoke to choke on :driving:
