Central locking problem with Kia Venga

My Kia Venga has developed an intermittent problem with the remote central locking. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Any ideas?

A sticking lock servo. If you can gain access through an access grommet or plug in the door, try spraying with WD40 using the long tube.
