@Jason Trevor I've been looking for well over a year too, so buckle in for a fun ride! I've not been able to lock my car for as long as I can remember, but fortunately it has an immobiliser and nothing of value inside so so far hasn't been an issue. I do get a lot of wind noise on the motorway with the window always slightly open though. It's been very frustrating, and the only black mark on my ownership over 3 years.

Does Lotus ever read the forums? And if they do, when will they finally take action over the bloody back order issues and delays to parts?  It's such a joke it is no longer a joke. The time for action is well over due.

@Jason Trevor, might be worth giving Central Lotus a call?

Shame it's not worth giving Lotus a call and they can't get their act together on spares.

Excuse my lack of knowledge but is the latch a very specific lotus manufactured item or is made in China that could be found in another car ? 
it sounds after all this time that’s there’s not a single latch left in the world ? 
can the part be made of these 3D printing things ?

It's not just this part, there are many on a regular basis.

Rms Romford replaced my drivers side last year and my passenger side door latch has started to play up. I guess I’m lucky to have found and bought one a few months back from Roco at south west lotus, sprayed the  old one and it worked for a few weeks, surprise surprise it’s now packed up, I’m going to have a go at fitting it, hopefully there is a thread on Here to follow!!

Very lucky indeed! I had a source who claimed they could get hold of one from the US, but unfortunately they've stopped responding to my emails now, so guess they can't! Still no luck from any of the UK dealers unfortunately. I would pull the fuse and lock the window closed, but I regularly take my son to nursery and classes so need to use the door.

This is just such a piss poor showing from Lotus. I am stunned that they have not resolved this issue given the time, and no, COVID is not an acceptable excuse. Just shockingly poor after sales service.
