The old screwdriver up the xxx, as prevented by proplates. are post 2016 models still susceptible to this attack or is the internal modification up to the task. HAs anyone with a post 2016 model been broken into this way?
I think that Steve and Soz is a 2017 (but not sure what the base vehicle is) and theirs was recently broken into this way as they described here.The old screwdriver up the xxx, as prevented by proplates. are post 2016 models still susceptible to this attack or is the internal modification up to the task.

Hi GromettI work under the assumption that ALL manufacturers are crap and a top priority for me is to fit new deadlocks.
The problem with manufacturers locks are that there are so many of them out there that eventually an exploit will be found. With deadlocks this just isn't possible without a decent skill level in lock picking.
I am talking about fitted to the vehicles doors not the habitation doors on coach built vans.
No. It may prevent or make the screwdriver slipped behind the handle moulding trick more difficult, but thieves will adapt to techniques they use on other vehicles, which I won't describe here, but can still be done in seconds although with more damage apparent.Back to original question does fiats mod actually prevent access
Ps not interested in how marvelous deadlocks are
We also always use the remote and I think there is a way to disconnect/unhook the lock activator inside the door frame. We can always use the hab door and hook it back up if the remote fails....but why should it.The easiest way is screew driver in lock barrel and turn. Easy peasy 2019 Ducato shite
Mine where done this year. Im going to blank them off with a metal plate. Don't need them with remote control and odds of the Remote not working very slim.
