    My interior hab door lock snapped at Chester.

    I need to source a new one but can't find it for love or money?

    any ideas?

    Mines nothing like that. Tried a main dealer? It will probably take a month to come and cost an arm and a leg I'm afraid.

    What bit has snapped, is it the handle ?
    Our Rapido door is made by Hartal but the lock mechanism and handles are probably by Zadi, an Italian company, had a Zadi external handle snap on the Bessacarr and tried for months to find a replacement, eventually had to buy the whole mechanism from Swift at about £300 - £400
    Put a photo up of the damaged part, I spent hours no days looking for a handle, it may help.
    Cheers
    Ed

    Contact some French dealers, if its a common problem they will probably have them in stock. Also it will be a lot cheaper.

    Try Highbridge. They've sourced me various Rapido bits and pieces and none have the prices have scared me so far.

    Mines different to this one above. ..

    @DavidG58 nothing to say the warranty will cover it mate...probably be wear and tear or alike.
