    does anyone know where I can get a bathroom door lock for a Rapido776FF 2010 model I have all fittings just need the lock. I tried Brownhills but they £130 for one.
    Thanks in anticipation
    Bill

    Bill, I'm pleased to see you can bathroom door locks for vans, as I am getting really cheesed off with bumping the door open by accident when I get out of the shower and it aint a pretty sight for anyone walking past. I have decided I need a lock on the door. Look forward to your responses. Joy

    Please describe the problem. I've had issues in the past with Rapido bathroom door locks and if yours is the same problem I may be able to help.

    Is it the internal spring that's gone ? I've got the same problem. I did an internet seach and found a supplier in the States. It would have cost over £200 to get from there.
    Just above where our handle is we have a towel rail, so my cheap solution has been to tie a piece of elastic around the door handle and then loop around the towel rail. it works for us until we can find a cheaper supplier.
    Lol

    My Rapido has the lock removed. I've never missed it, it's not like anyone is going to barge in on me :LOL: and no harm if they do

    Is it just the lock part or the whole mechanism that you have removed?
    If so, what have you replaced it with?

    The lock is integral to the handle so I just have the handles and latch without the lock

    It is the internal spring on the lock tongue that is not working, so it sounds similar to your problem

    Mine must have been repaired and the thumb turn removed by Carol whom I bought it from.
    I will venture to take mine apart tomorrow and photograph the parts
