Door Lock Vandalized - Key Does Not Work

Hey guys,

My door lock, thanks to some prick out there, was tampered with and is vandalized. The reason I say that is cuz one morning my key would not go in the driver's side but the passenger side works fine.

I tried pushing it , shoving it in, but the key won't go in. Is there an easy way to access the lock to inspect it. I've removed the door panels before and they're fairly easy to take off.

Or does someone suggest I try something else first.

Thank you.

cp[mike] is very helpful cp[mike] is very helpful
if you pull the door panel off and the window up, you can remove the door handle by removing the two 10mm bolts on either side of the inside of the handle, and prying the bar out of the plastic clip on the back of the lock. with the handle removed, you can pull the lock out and pull it apart...

You could try to open the flap up and shine a light from a LED light or something then peer in, i dunno if u want to do that and get a rough idea on whats going on inside the lock. if u got a photo viewer thing then you could mess about with that. i dunno if thats more work or less. goodluck.

but mike did u weld the Piston and Valve together in your engine?!!?! lolz!

Thanks for those tips guys. It's a little bit cold outside where I am (Mike can attest to what I'm talking about), so I'm gonna find a garage where I can temporarily park it and check the insides out.

So Mike, how have u been? Hope all is well. Just so you know, I'm a firm believer in the copper gasket you showed me once.

if the lock is broken, you can always upgrade to the security locks. later.

If you'd had the snow, rain and sleet in NYC that everyone else has had in NY, then there may be a bit of water in your lock that's frozen. I believe the same thing has happened to me. Somehow just enough water has gotten into my lock cylinder that when it's really cold, before the car warms up, I can't open my door.

Update:

The weather finally got warmer and I was real tired of opening the passenger side door and leaning inside to open the driver's door (my power door locks don't work too well )

I followed CP[Mike] directions and it turned out to be a quite easy repair. The door panel was easy and those 2 bolts were pretty accessible. However prying that bar out took some work since I didn't want to damage it.

Once I had the cylinder in my hand, I took it apart. I took out each individual pin and spring and cleaned it with acetone. It was all gunked up with Krazy Glue. I put every thing back together and all went well. I did manage to lose one of those springs that go inside the cylinder, but it didn't affect the functioning.

All in all it took about 2 hours (including the time it soaked in acetone and cleaning) and it was well worth not paying $40 for a new cylinder. Thanks to everyone who replied and to Mike.

good job!
krazy glue eh!! i guess somebody hates you enough to get some glue, get it in your lock and enjoys the sight of you having to open the door through the passener side everytime or it was just some random kid who had nothing else better to do..

I'm positive it was no random act. There's someone who's after my car. A few months ago I found a piece of board with nails sticking out conveniently under my front passenger tire. Luckily I removed it before it did anything. Now, every time before I get in my car, I do a walk around and do a visual inspection.

BTW, if you don't see me posting here for a while, it's not because I fell over the face of this earth.
