1. DISCONNECT THE
BATTERY before starting work
Remove door handle, window winder and grab handle from each door. Unclip the plastic lock button surround. Unscrew and remove the door pockets where fitted, then carefully remove the door trim panels by releasing the plastic clips from the sides and bottom and slide the trim down.
Drill a 14mm hole in each door pillar, just below the interior light switch, and in the leading edge of each door just below the upper hinge for the door cables. If necessary release the check strap from the door (by removing the clevis pin) to gain access. Treat the bare metal edges to prevent corrosion.
Photograph 2 shows
a Right Hand door with the two templates in position. Carefully cut the
two templates from the sheet and position them (with the printing showing)
as shown in the photograph. Use the trim clip location hole to accurately
align the templates by carefully cutting out these holes in the template.
Mark the location of the four 5mm holes for the motor and lever assembly
and remove templates for use on the other door. Drill the four 5mm holes
taking care to prevent damage to the outside door skin by placing a piece
of wood behind where the holes are to be drilled. Repeat for the Left
Hand door with the templates reversed (plain side showing).
Fit the CDL Lever Assembly as shown in Photograph 6 using the 5mm screws and nylock nuts as supplied. Note that the pivot hole should be at the bottom of the fixing strip and make sure the CDL lever is positioned in front of the factory lever as shown.
Attach the Lock Motor to the hook. Note the hook should point down and the large body of the Lock Motor should face upwards. If necessary, temporarily remove the CDL lever from the fixing strip to make attaching the lock motor easier. Fix the Lock Motor to the door using the self-tapping screws supplied taking care not to over tighten. Repeat for the Left Hand door.
To ensure correct operation it is necessary to accurately mark and drill the factory locking lever to attach the top end of the CDL Lever Assembly. The procedure is as follows.
1. Open the door and
with a screwdriver or similar tool push the lock actuator to simulate
a door closure (see photograph).
4. Estimate the mid
point, mark and move the CDL lever to this position (see Photograph 5).
Check that the hole in the CDL lever aligns with the factory lever on
the flat part just before it bends inwards. If not carefully ease the
holes for the fixing strip to ensure the CDL lever aligns correctly.

Connect the BLACK
wire in the harness to a suitable ground point and connect the RED wire
to a permanent live feed, the BROWN wire on the 5 pin ignition switch
plug is a suitable point. Insulate and secure the BROWN and WHITE wires
unless you intend to use our Rover Alarm interface, in which case follow
the instructions supplied with that kit.
If the system fails to operate, first check that all connections are made correctly particularly the BLACK ground and the RED power leads. Also check the fuse.
If these are OK -
remove the 3mm fixing which attach the operating lever from both doors
and check that operating the lever on one side causes the other to move.
If the motors still do not operate the problem is likely to be electrical.
If the levers operate correctly the problem is likely to be with fixing
of the mechanism. Adjustment can be obtained by easing the holes where
the lever attaches to the door, moving the pivot point backwards or forwards,
to ensure the lever has the correct travel and operates the switches in
the lock motors. Remember that the system will only work with both doors
Rover Alarm Interface
Identify and check the contents of the kit that should contain the following:-
The Rover Alarm Module
is located on the front bulkhead, behind the dash panel just above the
point where the heater pipes enter. See Photograph 2. Remove the wooden
dash (if fitted) and any trim necessary to gain access to the 26 way connector
on the module.
Next insert the crimp terminal on the end of the ORANGE wire in the connector housing in position 13. This can be identified as the empty position on the end adjacent to the large purple wire already in the connector. Now insert the PINK wire in position 11 (next but one). See photograph 4. Ensure the terminals are inserted the same way round as the existing terminals and that they click home correctly. Close the cover and reconnect to the Alarm Module.
Now connect the BROWN and WHITE wires to the corresponding coloured wires in the Central Locking Harness. Connect the BLACK wire to the BLACK wire in the Central Locking Harness using the Splice connector provided.
Reconnect the battery
and re-enable the alarm system by setting and resetting the alarm 3 times
with the remote. The system should now operate the central locking whenever
the alarm is set or reset. Remember the central locking system will only
work with the doors closed. If the alarm is set or reset with a door open
it will be necessary to operate the central door locking manually before
the system can be operated using the alarm remote.
