Door Lock Sets, Trunk Lock Sets
Door locks can be changed for many reasons. When keys are lost, some may opt to totally replace the locks on their doors. Some used car buyers change locks as a matter of course to avoid break in by previous owners or dealers. Sometimes the door locks brake and need replacing. The process can be lengthy and frustrating, but can save lots of money when it is not taken to a professional. The inside door arm rest and panel must be removed. The door panel is usually held on by plastic clips that can be removed by pliers. The lock core must be disconnected from the rod and the door handle assembly removed. Make note of the position of the rod before removing the door handle assembly. Then the lock can be replaced. Just like any other part for the car, the lock set must be purchased especially for the make and model of the car.
