 The central locking on the ax is made up of 2 door motors and one boot motor and one central locking controller. Its alot easier to use the standard system from a GT/​GTi/​Forte than buy a universal kit, all ax's have provisions for the motors to be installed to the latches ​ The central locking on the ax is made up of 2 door motors and one boot motor and one central locking controller.

-- this needs more info on the wiringattaching ​the motors ​to the doors and boot etc FIXME FIXME FIXME+Fitting is fairly simplefirst remove ​the door card and the protective cover to gain access at the latch. You will need to disconnect the rod from the internal door handle by removing the door handle itself. Next remove the 3 Torx bolts that hold the latch to the door and pull the latch into view. You can see that the central locking motor "​twists"​ into place one the arm has been aligned with the latch (see picture below for a reference). Once you have attached the motor re-attach the latch (fiddly). Once you have sussed how to attach the motor it may be easier to remove it and try to reattach it with the latch partially in place (the latch will be out of view so this has to be done by feel)
