Q: Ignition lock cylinder broken

asked by on

The door lock is broken, and the ignition lock cylinder is damaged.

If the lock cylinder has truly been damaged, there are not a whole lot of options other than removing and replacing the damaged components. In order to do so, the door panel and lock cylinder can be removed and replaced from the inside. Sometimes the lock cylinders can be fixed or rebuilt but this is labor intensive, it is typically cheaper and less of a hassle to buy a replacement lock cylinder.
