I had my Bongo serviced and the next day I noticed that the central lock now doesn't work on the side door. It moves slightly but not enough to either lock or unlock. I can lock it with the key so it is something to do with the central locking.

The service involved replacing something in the wheel which required alot of banging so it might have dislodged something.

Any ideas?

The central locking mechanism is powered by a small motor rather than a solenoid. These motors weaken with age so it's likely that this is the cause of your problem, the motor no longer has the power to pull the mechanism. On my van the lock button would "dip" but not move all the way down. I bought a replacement motor from China on eBay fitted it and all is now well again.

Edit
This is the motor I used
