TX Central Locking

TX Central Locking

Postby Sarosa » Mon Sep 26, 2005 5:03 am

Does anyone know if the central locking of a fuego or R18 or R20 is basically the same as a 16TX and has anyone tried to transfer/modify one of those sytems to a 16? I am particularily interested in the actual inner door components/system.

Thanks

Is there a chance you can take some photos or diagrams of the locking kits?

I have a Fuego here I can compare for you / us.

I am thinking more of the internal door system, ie the locking "motors", set up inside the door etc.

Fuego central locking solenoid / mechanism

Hope this makes sense.. put some photos of the door in for scale.

Other considerations even if they dont suit could be the crash sensor in the Fuego (with the big red button under the dash - drivers side).

From what I can see they look similar, but on the other hand I have only seen the R16 locking solenoids on picture in the spare parts book.

The interesting point must be that the stroke of the R18/Fuego solenoid is long enough to lock/unlock the R16 lock.
Another thing is how the manual override system works. If I remember correctly the R18/Fuego lock cylinder has a plastic peg that pushed the actual lock lever if the battery is dead/central locking malfunction.

The Fuego / 18 solenoid is definitely strong enough to do the job, and for solenoid travel distance (as the Fuego uses) a lever of differing length could be used.

The key in the 16 'flips' the lock, if you added a switch that doesnt require much travel of the barrel to activate, the manual turn method should still unlock the car as per normal given the right leverage in the lever mechanism setup.

Thanks David & guys.

Yep that fuego set up looks the same to me. Maybe lengths would need to be adjusted but that should be simple enough. Dave - thought about transferring this set up your 16TX project? I'll be heading down to pick-a- part soon to rip some out of a fuego. Plenty of fuego's lying at the wreckers down there!
